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. Our interest form is closed now for 2021 and due to the high volume of messages, only those selected will be contacted. Thank you for your interest!
