Peaches announced as a guest curator and performer for Sled Island this year, pretty sweet! Despite the weak Canadian dollar I expect the festival to still bring in lots of good talent. Last year there were more passes and tickets sold than ever before! I have a couple friends who work pretty closely with the festival. They haven't let much slip yet, but they said they would probably give me some info this week. Either way, first lineup announcement is in a week and a half!
If any Americans have ever considered visiting Calgary before, this would be a fantastic time. The festival is always one of the best weeks of the year and with our dollar's current value, it would be a pretty inexpensive trip.
As much as I'd love Pea to be wrong, I have to agree. Assuming the top eight on the poster are Florence, The Cure, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Alabama Shakes, A$AP Rocky, Sufjan Stevens, and M83, then that's already a lot bigger than Sasquatch usually goes. And some of that mid/undercard is looking like Snacks went into full-on board appreciation mode.
I think we did this to ourselves by hyping up the possibility of LCD so much. At least we will all hopefully get another chance to see them. Maybe they'll even get their own gorge show.
