Start Time 9:00 pm

The always entertaining and unpredictable Sled Island Rock Lotto will make its triumphant return on Saturday, November 18!

Join us at the Palomino Smokehouse, where we’ll bring together 25 musicians from various backgrounds and draw names from a hat to form one-off bands for one night only, with just 12 hours to write and perform new material!

This year, the event is focused on creating meaningful connections between musicians just starting their music journey in the city and artists more familiar with the Calgary music scene, with the goal of fostering a more diverse music ecosystem and increasing equitable access to creative opportunities for all.
