Dust off your boots and get your Canadian tuxedo ready for Calgary Stampede because it’s all kicking off next week.
People from all over the world are expected to attend this year’s Stampede as the city transforms with atmospheric events happening around every corner. This includes the biggest parties at the brand new Badlands Music Festival.
Earlier this year, Blueprint Events acquired Calgary’s Knoxville’s Tavern which will be the venue to host 10 days of epic post-Stampede events. Badlands Music Festival kicks off on Thursday, July 4 with the Bastid’s BBQ. Starting at 5 pm, the BBQ is set to feature heavyweight Canadian talent Kardinal Offishall, Shad, Choclair, Jayemkayem, DJ Pump, and more.
Badlands also announced the headliner for the festival, Machine Gun Kelly who will be performing on Saturday, July 13. The rapper’s newest release “I Think I’m Okay” with YungBlud and Travis Barker, is soaring in the charts and broke one million views on YouTube in 24 hours.
“I Think I’m Okay” is the lead single off Machine Gun Kelly’s fourth studio album which is set to drop July 5, ahead of his Badlands Music Festival performance. In the last year, the artist has created a buzz with his ongoing rap feud with Eminem which led him to produce a diss track called “Rap Devil.”
Joining the rapper at Badlands Music Festival will be artists including DJs Tiesto and Kaskade, RL Grime, country music stars Gord Bamford and Tim Hicks, and DJ Pauly D. This diverse lineup means that Knoxville’s is going to be your go-to spot after hitting the Stampede.
