Calgary Folk Fest in photos

By Miranda Krogstad, July 28 2015 —

Another year of Calgary Folk Fest has come and gone, and it was a good one. Festival-goers enjoyed a carefree weekend while headliners like Father John Misty, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Kid Koala put on sets to remember.

Missing Folk Fest already? Check out our photo recap of the weekend.



Black Joe Lewis snapped two guitar strings with his soul-felt riffs in his set Friday night.


After bands paraded through the crowds at Saturday’s “Give Up the Funk” workshop, an elated fan followed them onto the stage to show off some moves of his own.














Thao Nguyen, frontwoman of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, rocks out on Saturday night.


The intensely animated Thao entirely disregards her band’s namesake as she thrashes around the stage during their set Saturday.


















A ‘recyclist’ pulls a cart of recycled waste behind him as one of the Festival’s sustainability initiatives.


Food trucks line the path to mainstage in the heart of Prince’s Island, fuelling festival-goers through the weekend.
