Banff Summer Arts Festival kicks off with Shad, A Tribe Called Red, and Holy Fuck [News]

Tweet

Banff, AB – On July 1, the good people over at the Banff Centre kick off the annual Banff Summer Arts Festival with a massive Canada Day show featuring Shad; A Tribe Called Red; and the live-elctro band, Holy Fuck. The concert is hosted by Steve Jordan – who you may recognize as the founder and executive director of the Polaris Music Prize. Holy f**k is right; am I right? Some of our favourite Canadian cats are all coming together for a monstrous Canadian music celebration. That, and Banff is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world.

So here’s the deal: it all goes down at the Shaw Amphitheatre, with gates opening at 4 p.m. Music performances start at 5 p.m. Admission is $30, but children under the age of two are admitted for free. So bring the entire “Fam-Jam” (that was a reference to a Shad song, FYI; a really great Shad song off of Flying Colours). And revel in the greatness that is Canadian music. Tickets are available for purchase online. Or you can call the Banff Centre box office at 403-762-6301 or 1-800-413-8368. Check out the official event flyer after the jump, and head on over to www.banffcentre.ca for more details.

About Shad

Shad is bad. He beat out compatriot Drake for the Best Rap Juno. He is righteous without being self-righteous and “carries himself with an endearing swagger that’s free of pretense.” – spinner.com

About A Tribe Called Red

A Tribe Called Red is the soundtrack of urban Native youth across Canada, championing their heritage and speaking out on Aboriginal issues, while still fighting for their right to party.

About Holy Fuck

Holy Fuck is sacred and profane. Holy Fuck is completely organic. Holy Fuck is an electronica band that uses only live instrumentation to achieve electronic-sounding effects without laptops or programmed tracks.
