The race hasn’t event started but the chase is now on.
We’re still a few months away from sunny, warm weather shining down upon us, but you can get a little more excited about what’s ahead with the initial announcement for the annual Chasing Summer EDM festival in Calgary, which will take place this year on Aug. 1-2.
Organizers have just announced that the first headliners for the event are legendary Dutch producer Armin van Buuren, bucket-headed American mixer Marshmello and a set by basketball icon Shaquille O’Neal (a.k.a. Diesel).
Other acts in the initial annoucement include Loud Luxury, Gryffin, Fisher, Tritional, Cosmic Gate, Audien and Frank Walker.
Tickets for the two-day 18+ event, taking place again on the Max Bell Centre Festival Grounds and featuring site-wide alcohol service, go on sale Friday, Feb. 28. There are also a number of VIP options available, with all of them including priority entry to the festival, a private VIP area with an upgraded beverage selection, souvenir laminates and more.
