THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME!
One of our favourite stampede events by far is the Stampede Roundup. This year it is moving to an amazing new location at ShawMillennium Park. It will feature two of our personal favourite bands, Walk Off the Earth & Duran Duran as well as Capital Cities who I am sure we will be a fan of after the event.
Tickets go for $129 (which to see these three bands for that price is a steal!/=) and can be bought at http://roundupmusicfest.com/. But, just for Calgary Foodies readers we’ve partnered with Roundup Music Fest to give away two tickets. All you have to do to win is follow us on Instagram and like our Roundup Music Fest post. That’s it. Tell your friends 🙂
