It’s FINALLY time for the Calgary Stampede again! Calgary is humming with excitement for this 10-day party – that’s because there’s something for everybody to do from July 4-14, whether you’re a fan of the rodeo or just like to have a good time.

Don’t believe us? Check out these acts performing at the Coca-Cola Stage throughout Stampede!


Feist is one of the most instantly appealing performance artists in the world. Exploding onto the worldwide stage with her hit album, The Reminder, homegrown Calgarian Leslie Feist combines a winsome voice with driving rock licks to create songs that everyone likes, from the edgiest hipster to the sweetest of grandparents. She’ll be on the Coca-Cola Stage on July 5.


Are you kidding? The searing sound of youthful emotional pain personified, Chris Carrabba and his band Dashboard Confessional will be at the Calgary Stampede? Time to put on a tight black t-shirt and reminisce about how your high-school sweetheart broke your heart in this intensely nostalgic stage show July 7.


He’s T-Pain! You know him! The reigning king of auto-croon, T-Pain knows how to put on a great show. Sure, it’s unlikely that he’ll be on a boat (Calgary is pretty far inland) but you know that he’s going to help the audience get their swerve on in the most soulful way possible. Don’t miss him on July 8.


When Canadian indie rock was the coolest sound on the planet, Metric was the coolest band in Canada. Lead singer Emily Haines’ eerily cool vocals and her band’s angular sound has always made people dance, and dance hard. Prepare to move in ways you didn’t know your body could muster on July 10.

And that’s just a select sampling of the bands who will be playing on one stage, for free, each and every night of the Calgary Stampede. There’s a reason this is called the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.

 Don’t miss out on all the fun of the Stampede. Book a room at the Days Inn Calgary Airport so you can catch all the action.
