We are so excited to announce the full lineup for Interstellar Rodeo 2013. Check it out!
Go to ARTISTS/SCHEDULE for details.
We can finally use the phrase, “This ain’t our first rodeo” when it comes to our summer festival presented by Six Shooter in Edmonton, AB! I mean, we already using that phrase for many other things, like ordering breakfast, operating a juicer, taking public transit, negotiating with terrorists, entering a sheep shearing contest, building a competitive battle robot, giving the Biebs a piggy-back ride, wearing swim goggles while chopping onions, operating a Zamboni, going to an actual rodeo, sabre fencing, that kind of stuff. BUT, specifically in reference to our totally amazing summer music festival in Edmonton, AB, NOW is the time for us to use said phrase!! So here we go, this ain’t our first (Interstellar) rodeo! The line up for Interstellar Rodeo 2013 will be announced on Tuesday! You have a nice long weekend to prepare yourself for the announcement, and then BLAMMO, we gonna hit you with a truth bomb! We are really, extremely, hella stoked about the amazing artists we have coming to Edmonton this summer, and we know you will be too! Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, April 6, and will be available through our webstore at www.sixshooterrecords.com, and also in person (in Edmonton) through Blackbyrd Myoozik and Permanent Records.
For those who attended last year, you will be able to get in on the pre-sale happening between April 3-5. In order to qualify, you need to create a log in on our new webstore (go to www.sixshooterrecords.com, click “store”, and then click “log in” on the top right corner). When you’re filling out the form, click the button that says “I went to Interstellar Rodeo 2012.” Please note: being on this email list does not mean you are automatically on our new webstore system. The two are separate systems. One of them is the email list system, the other is the new webstore system. Systems. Not the same. Syyyyyssssteeeem-mm-m-m-m-s. *bloop*
The festival dates this year are July 26-28, and it will once again be hosted at the lovely William Hawrelak Park amphitheatre, and the vibes will once again be glorious.
We really can’t overstate how excited we are for the return of our festival! The inaugural edition of Interstellar Rodeo was so much fun, and the overwhelmingly fantastic response we got from those who attended last year has been truly inspiring. We can’t wait to saddle up and do it even better for you all this time around! Yaaa!
Interstellar Rodeo returns for its sophomore year with a big name at the top of the 2013 bill. Alabama Shakes, purveyors of raucous southern soul powered by the force of nature that is lead singer Brittany Howard, are confirmed to play Interstellar Rodeo’s stage this year. The band’s acclaimed debut album, Boys & Girls, included “Hold On,” named Rolling Stone’s Best Song of 2012. With multiple Grammy nominations already to their name, this relatively young band’s meteoric rise is built on knockout performances and true blue talent. Interstellar Rodeo is excited to announce Alabama Shakes as one of this year’s headliners.
See Alabama Shakes perform the tune on Saturday Night Live HERE
Stay tuned for Interstellar Rodeo’s full musical lineup announcement later this month. The festival takes place in Edmonton’s beautiful Hawrelak Park, July 26-28, 2013.
We’ve received a bunch of requests from folks asking if they can purchase early bird passes for holiday gifts. We don’t have our line up ready to be announced, so we’re putting on a “Have a Little Faith In Me” Rodeo Christmas special where a limited number of weekend passes will be made available for sale through our brand new web store for the low price of $139 ($99 for youth/senior). These will be available while quantities last.
Please Note: if you attended the Interstellar Rodeo 2012 and have registered with us at the Six Shooter webstore, then you will be eligible for the pre-sale for returning patrons. This pre-sale will begin in March once the line up is announced but before tickets are made available to the general public.
Dates for 2013 announced: the second Interstellar Rodeo will take place Friday, July 26 through Sunday, July 28, 2013. Stay tuned for ticket information!
