Inspire your next event with music

With so much happening in Calgary’s music scene, 2016 promises to be a remarkable year for delegates, visitors and locals, creating a cultural legacy for years to come.
Proclaiming it the Year of Music in Calgary, Mayor Naheed Nenshi notes:

“There are so many amazing music-related events scheduled in 2016 that it became clear we needed take the full year to celebrate. This year, Calgarians will experience music in every corner of Calgary.”

To take it all in, enjoy a walk down Music Mile, a cluster of local live music venues leading to Studio Bell, Home of the National Music Centre (NMC). Opening this summer, the NMC is a unique offering to Calgary’s offsite event inventory, with space that can host groups up to 300 people. The architecturally-stunning facility, with five floors of exhibition space dedicated to telling the story of music in Canada, will be an international hub for music and technology.
Music will fill the air from concert halls, outdoor parks and local clubs with over 150 music related events taking place. In Calgary this spring, the JUNO Awards will welcome the year’s most celebrated musicians to the city.
Join us to Push Play on the Year of Music in Calgary.
