Kicking Off Sled Island

Music has always been a great inspiration to what we do at Nudie Jeans, and green initiatives are something that we applaud. This week we’ll be in Calgary, Canada, to attend one of the greener festivals around, Sled Island. Not only are we on site to enjoy the festival to the fullest, check out the great artist and enjoy the vibe. We also sponsored the Sled Island Kick-Off party. A great event held at the Commonwealth Bar & Stage, with great performances by The Slabs, Slow Down Molasses and Ayoo Angie, among others.

Our Calgary correspondent, Glenn Alderson, will be our man about the festival and he’ll make sure to cover the most interesting artists and happenings. Tell us a bit about yourself Glenn:

Hey everyone! My name is Glenn Alderson, long time supporter of Nudie Jeans and I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta – home of the illustrious Sled Island Music Festival. Five years ago I moved to Vancouver, working as the editor for a monthly music, arts & entertainment publication called BeatRoute Magazine. I have been to Sled Island every year since its inception and the festival has proven itself to be one of the most exciting multi-day/multi-venue music festivals in North America. This year is celebrating more than 200 bands over the course of five days.

Last year Mother Nature wasn’t so kind to Sled Island and, because of massive rainfalls in the prairie region, flooding of the city’s downtown core led to the unfortunate and abrupt ending to the festival before it could even barely get underway. However, this year the festival’s slogan is “Nobody Rains On Our Parade” and it is with that heroic and positive energy that I’m putting in my ear plugs and going back to Calgary for another year of loud music, late nights and undoubtedly lots of fun. Stay tuned for more highlights and updates from me on the ground at Sled Island. Calgary, Alberta... Let’s do it!

Your jeans go
where you go.
They live your lifestyle.
They get abrasions
and scars.
And they bleed.
Just like you.
