Calgary’s The Electric Highway Festival is inching near with its 3 days of music on March 23, 24, and 25 at Dickens, with Canadian bands trekking from across Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba along with American headliners, Los Angeles’ Sasquatch.
To showcase this year’s festival lineup, event organizers are sharing their curated Spotify playlist of bands performing on the 2023 edition of The Electric Highway Festival.
The 2023 edition of the festival focuses on Desert rock and metal, Doom, Sludge, Heavy Psych and has expanded to include some punk and hardcore bands as well.
The festival features Californian headliners Sasquatch, one of the festival’s past favourites, laying down their brand of fuzzy, kick-ass desert rock & heavy psych with direct support from Vancouver’s La Chinga, returning for their 4th appearance on Saturday night. Black Mastiff returns to headline Friday night with Calgary’s Gone Cosmic, and HypnoPilot headlines the Thursday show with support from Citizen Rage. These are just a few of the wicked bands that will be playing at The Electric Highway. The full lineup can be found below.
