Buckle up for The Electric Highway Festival, two days of killer bands, rad artists and fuzzy vibes at the historic Royal Canadian Legion in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The yearly event that previously went by the name 420 Music & Arts Festival, will be returning for its 4th year April 17-18, 2020. Regarding the name change, the organizers explain:
“When we came up with the concept for the festival in the fall of 2016, legalization was only an idea and we had no idea what impact that would have on our festival, but it has been more of a hindrance on many levels. As The Electric Highway, we can focus on the bands, artists, vendors and the growth of the festival without being limited in any way and continue to provide all our guests with an unforgettable festival experience.”
The 2020 lineup brings an electric offering of North American bands featuring headliners Sasquatch and Wo Fat laying down their brand of fuzzy, kick-ass Desert Rock & Heavy Psych. If that’s not enough, Nebula returns to Calgary for the first time in over a decade! Duel from Austin, Texas will be playing Canada for the 1st time at The Electric Highway along with Hippie Death Cult & LáGoon both from Portland, Oregon. 420 favorites La Chinga return from Vancouver for their 4th appearance and Calgary’s Gone Cosmic & Buzzard from Victoria, BC are just a few more of the wicked bands that will be playing on two stages over the two days of The Electric Highway, the full lineup below.
2 Day Festival Pass holders can pick up their wristbands a day early at The Electric Highway Kick-Off Party, Thursday, April 16th, 2020 at The Palomino Smokehouse & Social Club. This event will be free for festival pass holders or $10 at the door for non-pass holders. Pre-order merch sales will also be available for pick up at this event too. Beat the lineup and come for some bands, beer & BBQ at the Pal!
The Electric Highway is a fully immersive festival experience and offers much more than just music. The festival also features an art & vendor exposition during both days at The Legion, April 17-18, 2020 and a pinball tournament at Pin-Bar, April 18th, 2020.
