Since 2007, Sled Island’s thoughtful, eclectic programming and independent spirit have produced a one-of-a-kind festival experience. Each June, the five-day music and arts festival brings together a community of more than 250 bands, comedy, film and art as well as over 30,000 attendees in more than 30 venues, earning rave reviews from attendees, artists and media across the globe.
The #KingEddyYYC is happy to host Sled Island 2019 events Wednesday – Saturday.
About Matthew Cardinal:
Matthew Cardinal might be known to you as a member of nêhiyawak, but that will do little to prepare you for the avant-garde improvisational work he does under his own name. This is meditative music caught on the interplay of freeform guitar and synth.
About Lucid 44:
Markus Overland, the creative force behind Lucid 44, is a real Calgary original, and there may be no other songwriter that has come from this town that has possessed such an idiosyncratic creative voice. Lucid 44 is folk that takes a dark turn, and this validates the fact that you don’t need a good time to have fun.
With four songwriters amongst its four members, Calgary’s Lashes fuse ‘90s dream pop and college rock with fuzz pedals and femme fury. Their 2018 EP, demos, vol 1., captures the raw energy of one of the city’s most active young bands.
About Ziibiwan (DJ Set):
Operating somewhere between drone and trip-hop, Ziibiwan’s unexpected weaving between amorphous and beat-driven music is the sonic equivalent of insatiable hunger. With a catalogue of genreless experimental music already under their belt and a debut record due in 2019, they’re definitely one to watch at this year’s Sled Island.
About Cole The God:
Cole the God is a Nêhiyaw/Canadian music producer, DJ, and musician from Calgary. Recently home from a European tour, Cole has opened for artists such as Mobb Deep, Big Boi, Tech N9ne, and Redman with shows spanning multiple countries. Cole has worked with and produced for a list of hip hop heavyweights including M.O.P., Apathy, Saigon, Guilty Simpson, and more.
