BOSTON POST-PUNKERS MISSION OF BURMA’S SLOT CROSSES ONE OFF OF MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL’S LONGTIME WISHLIST

The Sled Island Music & Arts Festival has released its newest list of 2014 headliners this morning.

According to today’s statement, “long-time festival wishlist performers” Mission of Burma, Boston post-punk legends, and Canadian alt-country mainstays Elliott Brood are two names among the dozens in the list announced for the second wave of Sled Island 2014 headliners.

Other names include Blitzen Trapper, freak folkers from Portland, San Francisco fuzz pop trope The Fresh & Onlys, Vancouver punk DIYers White Lung, and Jung People, Calgary’s own experimental post-rock instrumentalists.

Jerusalem In My Heart will also be coming back post-flood to wrap up their residency at the National Music Centre.

For those who love to headbang, be on the lookout for Power Trip, punk-thrashers from Dallas, and Vancouver mainstays Anciients.

Personal picks from guest curator Kathleen Hanna of The Julie Ruin include Screaming Females, Hunx & His Punx, Younger Lovers, Mindtroll, and Roman Polanski’s Baby.

Headlining artists announced last month include Spiritualized, Neko Case, and Rocket From the Crypt.

The eighth Sled Island Music & Arts Festival takes place June 18-22 at numerous venues throughout Calgary’s downtown core and inner city. Discovery ($199), Discovery Plus ($349) and All Ages ($50) passes are on sale now at SledIsland.com.
