One of the Calgary Stampede’s most exciting music stages has just announced another part of their lineup for the 2018 show, and it is already looking like the place to be this summer.
The Coca-Cola Stage appears to feature a bit more rock than the rest of the country-heavy festival — it is the Stampede, after all — with performers like Lights and Our Lady Peace expected to perform throughout the 10-day event.
