Sled Island Music & Arts Festival Cancelled Due To Severe Weather
Due to the current emergency situation in Calgary, Canada, where severe weather conditions and flooding have caused authorities to evacuate an estimated 100,000 people in the city, Sled Island Music & Arts Festival has announced the cancellation of all remaining events for this year's festival. The safety of the festival attendees, staff members, participating artists and the people of Calgary is, and will always be, Sled Island's top priority.
Sled Island officials have released a statement, which is below:
"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.
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."
