Sled Island is announcing curator news on Tuesday! Looks like I'll be back in Calgary from travelling in time for it this year. I also won't have a job so I can just hit up the festival all day every day this year.
It's always hard to predict who might be playing but I'm thinking there's a chance of Neutral Milk Hotel, Spoon, Sleater-Kinney, or the Jesus & Mary Chain (to make up for 2013) as headliners.
I've been attending for about five years now and the festival is always an amazing celebration of the city and its (relatively) small but awesome music scene.
I checked the source code to see if they accidentally leaked anything there like they did a couple years ago. No dice.
I have a couple change detection services set up on the source code so we won't miss anything they change even if it's only for a little bit. I'll check the logs more often now. That's how I snagged the posters ~10 mins early last year haha.
I've actually had a rather strong psychic feeling that Clark world get booked. I hadn't seen him on any other lineups yet, but he seems like the kind of really good rare booking Sasquatch would get, kind of like Gesaffelstein and Fuck Buttons (single tear) were last year.
Edit: I have the same feeling about Todd Terje for the same reason.
Give me both as well as Jamie xx, Flying Lotus, Rustie, and SBTRKT and it will be one hell of a weekend in that tent.
