ellie
Indie-pop princess  Ellie Goulding is at the top of the charts with her infectious sound. With her unique soprano tone and knack for writing catchy yet emotionally earnest songs, Goulding stands at the forefront of contemporary mainstream music.
alexisonfire_v2
One of the biggest bands to come out of Canada’s underground music scene, Alexisonfire released four successful albums internationally, and amassed a legion of fans all over the world.
hozier
Hozier's debut album makes it easy to fall in love with the Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who cites James Joyce's Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Leonard Cohen, John Lee Hooker, and community choral singing among his influences.
tenacious_d_v2
Rightfully hailed as "the greatest band on Earth," the super-sized acoustic metal/comedy duo Tenacious D was an unlikely success story. Tenacious D have never performed in Alberta and are sure to be a fan-favorite!
brandon
The most popular frontman of the early 2000s new wave revival, Brandon Flowers and the Killers helped popularize a genre that hadn't been fashionable for nearly two decades, drawing influence from a number of '80s synth pop bands -- including New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen, and the Psychedelic Furs. This is Brandon's first solo appearance in Alberta.
mother_mother_v2
Playing smart and amiable folk-rock with an alternative edge, biting wit, and a jazzy sense of sophistication, Mother Mother hails from Vancouver.
tv_on_the_radio
From their beginnings as Brooklyn-based experimenters to one of the most acclaimed bands of the 2000s and 2010s, TV on the Radio mixed post-punk, electronic, and other atmospheric elements in vibrantly creative ways, and are both visual artists as well as musicians.
flaming
Even within the eclectic world of alternative rock, few bands were so brave, so frequently brilliant, and so deliciously weird as the Flaming Lips. From their beginnings as Oklahoma weirdos to their mid-'90s pop culture breakthrough to their status as one of the most respected groups of the 2000s, the Lips rode one of the more surreal and haphazard career trajectories in pop music. An acid-bubblegum band with as much affinity for sweet melodies as blistering noise assaults, their off-kilter sound, uncommon emotional depth, and bizarre history (packed with tales of self-immolating fans and the like) firmly established them as true originals.
tokyo_ploice_club_v2
Toronto's quirky, high-energy indie rock outfit Tokyo Police Club formed in 2005. They began performing live that summer, and the rest is history.
raa_v2
In 2006 singer-songwriter Nils Edenloff, percussionist Paul Banwatt, and multi-instrumentalist Amy Cole came together to release their debut self-titled EP as The Rural Alberta Advantage. The ensuing years have brought three full-length albums, widespread critical praise, Juno Award Nominations, a Long List Nomination for the Polaris Music Prize, and a hard earned reputation as one of the most impressive live bands you’ll ever see.
kongos
Based out of Phoenix, Arizona and sharing influences as diverse as Wire, Coldplay, Tinariwen, Dire Straits, the Prodigy, and Miles Davis, Kongos specialize in driving, arena-ready alt-rock in the vein of Muse, the Boxer Rebellion, and Kings of Leon that's infused with the polyrhythmic cadences of their South African upbringing.
st_lucia
Jean-Philip Grobler, known by his stage name St. Lucia, is a South African-born, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter creating shimmery, '80s-influnced, synth-driven pop.
bigdata
Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.
robert_delong
Los Angeles-based electronic musician Robert DeLong mixes dance music with his own singer/songwriter style of craftsmanship.  Utilizing MIDI interfaces and mixing live while he performs, DeLong plays keyboards, drum pads, drum set, laptops, and even gaming controllers to create his songs.
k-os_v2
Kheaven Brereton, aka k-os is a singer as well as a rhymer, and a producer to boot. K-os proved on his debut album, Exit, that being preachy didn't have to mean being boring.
eagles
Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite their band name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as "The Eagles of Death Metal". After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band was born.
the_elwins
Toronto indie pop group the Elwins formed in 2008 when singer/guitarist Matthew Sweeney and drummer Travis Stokl were in high school. They discovered a mutual passion for the Flaming Lips and decided to start a band.
gay_nineties
The Gay Nineties are equal parts swagger, psychedelia keyboard, stomping drums, and tight harmonies. They deliver an explosive live performance showcasing their clear musical sensibility and style, inspired by multiple decades of artistic influences.
youngempires
...the mathmania of Battles, the gloss'n'grandeur of The Killers, and the calamitous quiver of Arcade Fire... Young Empires have consummately summated this generation's achievements in Rock. Not that they're total re-tread merchants; no, they're master weavers of our disparate indie threads, forging a fine tapestry of future disco..
thezolas
The Zolas' new album, 'Ancient Mars' feels like an isolated summer between college semesters. Instantly nostalgic with touches of New York natives Ambulance Ltd., New York adoptee John Lennon, and the lost riffs of mid-90’s campus radio.
