If you're not so much into the raving and are more a fan of indie and folk music, then you're in luck. This weekend, Calgary is hosting a huge 4-day music festival that is bringing some big names in the industry to our beloved Prince's Island Park. It's bound to be a foot-stomping, hand-clapping good time, and you can still get tickets!
It's the perfect way to enjoy some awesome music, have some great food, and make memories with friends. Know someone who'd love to see these names live? Let them know!

These are just a few of MANY artists performing at this year's Calgary Folk Music Festival. You can buy 4-day passes for $195, or if you're a broke student and only want a day's worth of music awesomeness, you can buy day passes for $60-$80 (depending on which day).
Not only is CFMF an awesome music venue, there is also an Arts Market that is super cool to poke around in. Not to mention all of the amazing food vendors that will be at the festival this year, fueling your music-loving-foot-stomping self!
