SLED ISLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL
Sled Island is an annual music and arts festival that began in 2007. Zak Pashak, then owner of the Calgary music venue Broken City, had been inspired by Pop Montreal and the street life that was activated by that festival. Knowing that Calgary had many more artistic venues than it was usually thought to have, Pashak felt his hometown could host a similar event.
Schedule of Events
In a downtown where cars often take priority to people, Sled Island is an experiment in urban life. The goal of Sled Island is to open up as much of the downtown core as possible and fill it with as many types of people as possible - using the appreciation of good, thoughtful, fun music as the impetus for people to get together.

Sled Island is accepting art exhibition, performance, installation and design proposals for the 2013 Edition of Art at Sled Island until Friday, May 3.
