Our Festivals are thoughtfully curated events and many factors go into identifying and booking artists for Calgary Folk Music Festival and Block Heater. We aim to program high quality, diverse festivals. We begin with priority lists that far exceed the number of artists we can realistically program and then discover more amazing music by keeping our ears and eyes open, attending festivals and conferences, talking to colleagues, etc. We rarely repeat artists to give others an opportunity and to present a fresh program to the audience.
While we don't accept unsolicited submissions, we remain curious and interested in hearing new music. If you’d like to get on our radar send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org between September 1 - December 15 ONLY with your band name in the header, a short bio and links to key music and videos. No attachments please!
