Calgary, AB festival Sled Island began this past Wednesday (6/19) and continued yesterday (6/20), but unfortunately, due to flooding in Calgary, the remainder of Sled Island 2013 is cancelled. A post on the festival's website reads:
In light of the current emergency situation, and in line with our commitment to the safety of festival-goers and the citizens of Calgary, all remaining Sled Island festival events are cancelled.Sad to hear. We hope everyone in Calgary is staying safe.
We have been fortunate to be able to hold two successful days of the festival and we thank attendees for their enthusiasm and flexibility.
In terms of our policy on passes and tickets, we ask for patience and understanding until we are able to address this in the days to come. We realize that there will be many questions to be answered from festival-goers, artists and partners. The Sled Island office in Mission has been evacuated and we are operating with limited resources.
Our commitment to the safety of the citizens of Calgary remains paramount. Please take care of your friends and family who may require assistance and stay safe.
