Between now and the start of the festival, members of the Sled Island team will be sharing their personal Sled Island schedules, highlighting their top picks for music, comedy, film, art and more. Check out their selections for a taste of what you can discover at this year's festival!
Today we have Maud Salvi, our Executive Director.
"It’s true that Sled Island is not a sprint, it’s a marathon, but I have to admit that this year the really tough choices start early on with a stacked Wednesday lineup. Before you pull all your hair out, start by looking into which bands are playing multiple shows and strategize using the venue map. Most venues are really close to at least one or two other ones and you may be able to easily switch back and forth. Concrete example: Friday night between 8 and 11pm we have two awesome and very different shows going on at Central United Church and Theatre Junction GRAND. Lucky for you, both are a block away so you should be able to catch a bit of everything. I won’t say it enough though, whatever choice you end up making, you will NEVER go wrong. Happy 10th Sled!"
