Win tickets to see Shad, A Tribe Called Red, and Holy Fuck in Banff [Contest]

Banff, AB – In case you missed the memo, the good people over at the Banff Centre are kicking off the annual Banff Summer Arts Festival on Canada Day by bringing Shad, A Tribe Called Red, and Holy Fuck to the Shaw Amphitheatre in beautiful Banff, AB.

It’s only a few days away, but we’ve got the goods for you. We’ve teamed up with the Banff Centre to give away a pair of tickets to the show. That’s right – you could see the homie Shadrach Kabango, alongside A Tribe Called Red (our very own Canadian homegrown DJ crew); and the live-electro outfit, Holy Fuck. Check out contest entry details after the jump.

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.” –

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.
