The first of many Sled Island performers were announced this afternoon, and along with 2015 guest curators Godspeed You! Black Emperor comes a slew of talented groups.
This year, the festival will feature Calgary’s own post punk pros Viet Cong, as well as such diverse acts as Body/Head, featuring former Sonic Youth’er Kim Gordon; New York punk icons Television; hip hop’s Black Milk; classic rockers Fu Manchu; the heavy metal stylings of Pentagram; as well as Drive Like Jehu, Lightning Bolt, Daniel Lanois, Ex Hex and King Tuff.
As always, this is just the first of many announcements from Sled, leading up to their June 24-28 festival here in Calgary. Tickets are available at www.sledisland.com.
