What a summer! This year, we pledged to visit more music festivals in more places across Alberta than ever before. And after sixteen festivals, from Lethbridge to Grande Prairie, we’ve made a lot of great memories. We want to share a few of them with you.

It’s also a chance to thank everyone who made this possible. The many artists who took time out of their busy schedules to join us on air, our dedicated staff and volunteers who helped make the broadcasts possible, and the festivals staff for helping us put everything together.

A special thanks to Cultural Industries Branch and the Province of Alberta for generously supporting our festival coverage.

Take a look at the fun we had along the way. We can’t wait for next year!
