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.
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'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.
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!
Playing smart and amiable folk-rock with an alternative edge, biting wit, and a jazzy sense of sophistication, Mother Mother hails from Vancouver.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Big Data is the contemporary electropop project of Brooklyn-based producer and Harvard graduate Alan Wilkis, inspired by themes of humans vs. technology.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Despite their misleading name, the group's sound is more akin to classic garage rock, with some elements of the Rolling Stones added in for good measure. The group's chief contributors include Queens Of The Stone Age front man Josh Homme (who handles drums, rather than his usual guitar/vocal duties), and Jesse Hughes (vocals, guitar).
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.
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.


This year we're at Borden Park!
