Sled Island Festival announces initial line up

Sled Island, Calgary's indie music festival, announced their initial line-up yesterday. It is an interesting mix of artists.

The initial line-up includes: legendary proto-shoegazers The Jesus and Mary Chain, epic instrumental post-rockers Explosions In The Sky, the Calgary debut of critically acclaimed experimental rockers Swans, Divine Fits, the indie rock supergroup featuring members of Spoon and Wolf Parade, national treasures the Joel Plaskett Emergency, wild crooner Mac DeMarco, the Polaris Music Prize-nominated solo horn player Colin Stetson, charismatic veterans of scuzz blues, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the heavily buzzed post-hardcore band Metz.

There will be over 250 acts that will perform during the festival. The rest of the bands are yet to be announced.

Sled Island runs June 19 - 22. Full festival passes are available from the Festival website for $179.
