We are so excited to announce that Ladywood Music will be hosting daily coverage of the Badlands Music Festival that is kicking off Stampede in style this weekend in Calgary, starting Friday July 5th.
After what can only be described as an incredibly trying time for the city of Calgary over the last 10 days, we can't be more excited that Badlands is almost here. The inaugural event hosts an outstanding lineup of artists that after reading the whole thing, leaves you in a state of slight disbelief that all these artists would trek all the way up to our beleaguered city and entertain us for a few days- but we couldn't be more grateful that they are. The festival boasts incredibly high production values as the sound, the stage, the lights and the special effects were all brought and produced by specialized individual teams guaranteeing that the festival will be a highlight of an already packed summer music lineup in Calgary. So if you haven't already get your tickets!!!
While picking a favourite artist is kind of like trying to pick a favourite child (just kidding who doesn't have a favourite child!) I think I can say with some confidence that I am absolutely head over heels excited to see Matt & Kim perform on stage this weekend. These two hooligans - while maybe not the most vocally adept- have continually impressed me with their high energy, engaging stage shows that are not only hilarious but will probably leave you air drumming and booty dancing right along with them. And yes- air drumming is a legitimate dance move, so deal with it.
Stay tuned for up to date coverage of the festival- including some pre-festival coverage about all the hard work that went in to planning such a large scale festival.
