CLASH OF THE CONCERTS

In this episode, Mackenzie Mason and Zachary Poole explore Calgary’s plan for replacing the Saddledome with a new arena being built in 2021. It talks how this will affect the amount of traffic Calgary gets from larger touring artists versus how this will impact Calgary’s already booming live music scene in smaller venues. We spoke to Ian Low, President of Central Canada for LiveNation, and BJ Downey, a booking agent for venues around the city like Broken City and the Palomino, to see what they had to say for the future of Calgary’s live music scene.
