The 4th Street Lilac Festival is about promoting independent and emerging talent from across Western Canada. We consider all musical and performance art acts, from dance troupes to children’s entertainment to world music.  The average attendance is approximately 100,000, so this is a great way to get some much-deserved exposure and take your art to the masses!

Only bands willing and able to travel & stay in Calgary on their own steam please! 

Only artists who are shortlisted will be contacted.

Travel and accommodation expenses are not covered by the festival.

Performance compensation is certain.
