Apr 11 2019, 5:37 pm

It’s nearly time to start daydreaming about the summer sunshine, long days, beautiful sunsets, and, of course, weekend festivals.

One of Calgary’s favourite July events is the four-day long Calgary Folk Music Festival, running from Thursday, July 25 to Sunday, July 28, and the full lineup has recently been announced by organizers.

Headlining performers include Belle & Sebastian, Half Moon Run, The Strumbellas, and Nathaniel Rateli & The Night Sweats with over 60 other acts joining in on the music at the festival’s various stages.

An evening schedule has also been released, so you can spend the next few months deciding which stages you’ll be at, with the full daytime schedules being released in the coming months.

Tickets are currently on sale for either single day admission or full weekend passes, with single day tickets going for $60 to $80 per person, and full passes being available for as little as $185.

The cost goes up to $225 per weekend pass if you’d like to purchase the Flex Ticket, which allows others to use your pass on days that you may not be able to attend.

You’ll also have to pony up a bit more cash for a full weekend ticket ($200 in total) if you purchase it after May 17, as you won’t get the early bird discount.
