    I would recommend Sled Island. It runs from June 24-June 27 at various venues
    around Calgary.

    Sasquatch is pretty close depending on if you are East or West. It's at the Gorge between Seattle and Spokane.

    Yeah Canada's pretty big - where about you going to be? If you're near Windsor then Detroit is right across the river and DEMF is May 23-25. All sorts of electronic music.

    Sasquatch is close to you, depending what part of Canada you are in

    Tons of Canucks go to Sasquatch every year. Great people.

    Shambala is legendary....

    out east though, the Ottawa Bluesfest is getting better every year...(yet they still had Fergie last year - UGH),
    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.

    I'd watch. Just to see if she wet herself, but still, I'd watch.

    I'm not a good person.

    Hillside in Guelph, ON is one of the best-kept secrets. Amazing chilled out hippie kind of vibe, and all the top Canadian indie bands have played there at some point or another.

    Another good one is Osheaga in Montreal, similar in size to Toronto's V-Fest. Montrealers party like lunatics so it's always a good time.

    I'm looking forward to the Rural Alberta Advantage this year.
