We're giving CFCR members a chance to win a way into the 12th Annual Sled Island Festival, taking place in Calgary, AB from June 20 - 24, 2018. This year features 250 bands across 30+ venues. And don’t forget the ever popular film, art, and comedy side of things. All this lines up to be another amazing year for the festival, so you gotta go!

This year's headlining bands include: The Flaming Lips, Dirty Projectors, DeerhoofThundercat, The Radiation Flowers, Caves, and many more!

We’ve whipped up a trusty contest checklist:
1. You must be a current 2018/19 CFCR Member. If you need to renew or sign up for yours, please visit this page.
2. You must be able to actually attend this year’s festival and meet the CFCR crew to pick the passes up in person! You’d be surprised how many people enter our contests who can’t actually go, so we want these to go to people who will appreciate them!
3. Have a loved one, a friend, or a stranger to go experience this great festival with you.

If all looks good on that list, you should email us your Name, Phone Number, and Membership Number with the subject "SLED ISLAND" to We’ll draw a lucky winner (two (2) Sled Island Discovery passes per winner, worth over $400) from an oversized novelty nacho hat on the morning of Friday, May 11th. The winner will be announced on The Buzz between 5-6pm that same day. 

*please note - winners will be responsible for their own transportation & accomodations at the festival*

Also, be sure to stay tuned to CFCR for announcement of our 8th Annual Saskatoon Showcase at the festival. Four of the finest Saskatoon bands playing one of Calgary’s finest venues!
