We received the news today that Mac DeMarco has to cancel his four appearances at Sled Island due to a personal emergency. The festival hopes he'll be able to come back to Calgary soon. If you purchased a ticket to one of Mac DeMarco's shows, we are offering full refunds where requested. We will be reaching out to ticket purchasers starting tomorrow, but if you want, please do let email@example.com know. In the meantime, we'll be working to fill his four slots.
Thursday, June 20th @ Golden Age Club - Night Marchers (highly in-demand Sled band featuring 3/4 Hot Snakes) replace Mac. The bill is now Night Marchers, Dent May, Lab Coast, Calvin Love.
Saturday, June 22nd @ Olympic Plaza - Samantha Savage Smith (everyone's favourite local songstress! If you missed her amazing new material at our kick-off, here's another chance to catch it!) replaces Mac. The bill is now The Jesus And Mary Chain, Akron/Family, The Thermals, The Dodos, Samantha Savage Smith, Lowell
Saturday, June 22nd @ Flames Central - TBA. The bill is now Divine Fits, TBA, Johnny De Courcy & The Death Rangers
Sunday, June 23rd @ Republik - Victories (kick-off party mind-melters) replace Mac. The bill is now Thee Oh Sees, The Blind Shake, Outer Minds, Circles, Victories
Thanks for understanding, festival-goers! We're as disappointed as you, but working hard to make the shows every bit as good as they would've been with Mac DeMarco in town! Confident they'll all be total parties.
