The Electric Highway Festival is excited to announce the final lineup for the 2024 edition of the festival, which will be held in Calgary, AB, on April 4, 5, and 6 at Dickens (1000 9 Ave SW). This is the biggest festival lineup yet, with 23 bands playing over three days.

Canadian Juno Award-winning Vancouver band Anciients will headline the whole festival. They will be joined by various Western Canadian bands, including Dead Quiet, Empress, Flashback, Buffalo Bud Buster, and more. Newly added to the bill are returning bands La Chinga, Hombre, and Set & Stoned, along with festival newcomers Prisoner, Passing Pluto, and Mors Sanctorum.

The final festival poster is now available. The festival artwork was created by Saskatchewan tattoo artist Roman Corkery (check him out). Besides being a fantastic tattoo artist, Roman is also a talented multi-media artist. The Festival thought it was time to have a full-on space theme. With Roman’s love of creating space-themed art, he was the perfect artist to tackle the idea, and the result was outstanding.

All festival tickets and passes are now available at presale pricing, including 2-day passes and single-day tickets. 2024 Festival t-shirts are now available for presale as well. Order now to save some money, and be sure to get the size you want. The Electric Highway Festival hosts various genres that range from Desert Rock, Stoner Metal, Doom, Sludge, Trippy Psychedelic, Surf Rock, Acid Rock, Noise Rock, Fuzz Rock, Space Rock, Blues Rock, Heavy Psych, Heavy Blues, Southern Rock, Fuzzy Punk, Sludgy Hardcore bands and variations of any of the previously mentioned styles.

The 2023 edition of the festival featured Californian headliners Sasquatch, one of the event’s past favourites, laying down their brand of fuzzy, kick-ass Desert Rock & Heavy Psych with direct support from Vancouver’s La Chinga who returned for their 4th appearance on the Saturday night. Black Mastiff returned to headline the Friday night with Calgary’s Gone Cosmic and HypnoPilot headlined the Thursday show with support from Citizen Rage. These were just a few of the wicked bands that played at this past year’s The Electric Highway.

The Electric Highway is excited to announce once again that New Level Brewing is not only the top sponsor but is also the preferred beverage provider for The Electric Highway and all the bands on the bill. New Level Brewing is a Calgary-based award-winning Craft brewery. New Level is known for bending the rules of the style guidelines to create bold beers that are just a bit different from what you may have had before. Specializing in unusual ingredients with eye-catching packaging, New Level’s craft beer and sodas are worth checking out. You can find New Level on all social media or their website at https://www.newlevelbrewing.ca/

The Electric Highway would also like to announce that Crooks Hollow Studio is their newest major sponsor. The festival is so excited to have them on board! One of Calgary’s newest state-of-the-art studios with top-of-the-line equipment will take a recording to the next level. Drummers will especially love this studio, with acoustics tailored to create the perfect big drum sound. Crooks Hollow Studio will be providing top-level backline equipment to this year’s festival, as well as technical support.
