Festival Opportunity - Sled Island Music & Arts Festival 2024

June 19-23, 2024 Calgary AB. Deadline to apply is Feb 2, 2024.

Deadline: February 2, 2024

This is your chance to play the Sled Island Music & Arts Festival (June 19-23, 2024 in Calgary, Alberta)!

If selected: artists/bands from Calgary will receive $200 for a first show; artists/bands from the rest of Alberta will receive $350 for a first show; and artists/bands from outside of Alberta will receive $500 for a first show. All artists/bands will receive an additional $100 for any additional shows booked by the festival. A Sled Island Discovery Pass will be given to each member of your band, granting you access to all festival events subject to capacity. We recognize the need for more equitable compensation for artists and have made increasing artist fees an internal priority for our organization over the past few years. This new pay structure is a step in that direction, and we are committed to continuing to strive to raise artist fees to more properly compensate Sled Island artists’ time, effort, and expenses.

A diverse listening committee made up of festival staff, musicians, community members, and industry professionals will assess submissions for quality as well as fit with the festival’s vision and schedule. The quality of the songs and performances submitted are far more important to our committee than production quality, promotional photos, live footage or media coverage, although these things can help us assess your fit with Sled Island. In short, their listening committee is hoping to be excited by your music and the possibility of seeing you at Sled Island 2024.

Please note that Sled Island only accepts submissions featuring original music created by the artist/band applying. Unfortunately, they do not accept cover bands or DJs that do not play original music they produced.
