Stampede is just around the corner and it wouldn’t be a boot-stomping good time without all the amazing musical acts that will be dropping into Cowtown for the festivities! This year’s newly-minted Roundup MusicFest has put together an amazing show at Shaw Millenium Park on Tuesday, July 11th. The show will feature a truly eclectic lineup of bands that will get you rocking out all night long.
Tickets are on sale now and I think it’s awesome that a portion of proceeds raised at this year’s event will be donated to the Calgary Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC). There are a lot of unique challenges for military personnel and their families and the MFRC does a great job to help our Canadian Armed Forces. They serve over 1,800 military and veteran families in Southern Alberta alone! Stampede partying for a good cause is always worthy in my books.
Canadian indie darlings Walk Off the Earth will get the party started with their fun blend of alternative pop and rocks songs. I love all their covers that they do so I hope they do a mix of originals and other Top 40 faves.
Dance-pop duo Capital Cities will keep the night alive with their blend of synthpop jams like this 2011 hit.
And the night will be capped off with a performance from rock icons Duran Duran! I’m quite partial to Rio and hope to see it live. Fingers crossed!
I’m so excited to partner with the Roundup MusicFest to give one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see Duran Duran, Capital Cities and Walk off the Earth at this year’s Roundup MusicFest! Enter below and be sure to check my Instagram for more chances to win. Good luck!
Prize is for two tickets to Roundup MusicFest only. Any travel and other accommodations will need to be arranged by the contest winner. Contest open to Calgary area residents.
