With 10 days of foot-stompin’ roots and country tunes from a roster of all-Canadian talent, the King Eddy is the place to be this Stampede.

Returning for a second year, Bell Live Series at the King Eddy sees the historic venue transform into a pop-up country saloon with a revolving roster of western-style acts to provide daytime and evening shows.

Partnering with the Alberta Small Brewers Association with support from ATB Financial, the National Music Centre is set to provide a wide selection of local craft brews alongside the live music. Headliners include Leeroy Stagger on July 7, Nice Horse on July 10, JJ Shiplett on July 15, and HighKicks on July 16.

“Last year, we brought the King Eddy back to life during Bell Live,” says President and CEO for the NMC Andrew Mosker, in a statement. “We’re excited to get rowdy at the Eddy for another Stampede week, and are proud to be a destination for Alberta craft beer close to the grounds this year.”

Visitors can also enjoy the sunshine on the King Eddy Rooftop patio, opened exclusively during Stampede week. Stop by before hitting the grounds or end your evening on the terrace with some of the best views of the Stampede’s closing fireworks. The King Eddy Rooftop will be open daily (weather permitting) from 12:00 to 11:00pm.

Bell Live runs daily from 11:30am to 2:00am, July 7 to 16, 2017. A $20 cover will be in place after 7:00pm until close for all headliner shows. All visitors must provide valid government issued photo ID.
