Sudan Archives Announced as 2022 Guest Curator


Alright, let's try this again!

Los Angeles-based violinist and vocalist Sudan Archives will be joining us as guest curator for Sled Island 2022, running June 22 - 26! The acclaimed electronic and R&B-infused musician and Stones Throw Records recording artist was originally scheduled to guest curate the 2020 edition of the festival, which was cancelled due to the global pandemic. 

“I’m excited Sled Island invited me back again to be a part of this year’s event,” says Sudan Archives. “It’s such an eclectic festival and I can’t wait to see my curatorial picks included within this year’s lineup!”

Along with guest curator duties, Sudan Archives will perform at the #1 Royal Canadian Legion (116 7th Ave. SE) on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Sled Island passes grant access to this show (subject to capacity). 

Each year, Sled Island’s guest curator puts their stamp on the festival through special programming choices and their presence at the event. Sudan Archives’ curatorial selections, to be announced in the coming months, will join over 200 additional bands, comedy, film and visual art projects chosen by the festival in multiple venues across Calgary.
