Next to the BUMP warehouse site at 10 Ave and 12 St SW, we’re hosting an alley party with live music, food trucks, local beer from Last Best Brewing, and hands on mural painting for all-ages with Contemporary Calgary. 


Live Music Lineup

Enjoy a top roster of DJs and live music acts at the Alley Party from 2pm-10pm featuring Sabota and a DJ set by Neon Indian.



Neon Indian -DJ SET – Alan Palomo is a Mexican born, Texas raised musician who has received major attention in recent years for his unique blend of electronic, shoegaze, and psychedelic dream-funk. His work as Neon Indian has landed him major spots at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and scored major praise from pitchfork, gorillavsbear, Spin, and more. Palomo is no stranger to performing alone, having crafted the majority of Neon Indian’s music in his home, and having initially performed early material as Vega (and Neon Indian) as a solo artist. His solo sets as a performing dj are reputably awesome, loaded with tons of underground contemporary dance jams and under the radar retro grooves, with the occasional Neon Indian and VEGA sampling.






Sabota – A collaboration between two very talented and separately quite successful artists: Robbie Slade, is one-half of Humans, and Max Ulis has been a lynch pin in the West Coast electronic music scene for over a decade. After establishing themselves as prolific artists on other projects, with Sabota, their individual sounds (which range from techno, bass, and house to vocal heavy pop music) are synthesized in a highly nuanced and beautiful way.

Food Trucks

Enjoy some of Calgary’s finest food trucks!


Avatara Pizza – As a business, Avatara is trying to balance the complex social, environmental, and economic needs of our community while maintaining profitability. Our vision to make fast food healthy and sustainable has gained more acceptance in the years following our entry into the local Calgary market.

Arepa Boss – Traditional Venezuelan arepas stuffed to the brim and overflowing with flavour! Gluten free. Made fresh to order.

Fiasco Gelato – Freshly made, hand crafted. As simple as that. All our pint offerings have the best quality ingredients we can get our hands on, fruit from places who care, berries from our neighbours in BC, milk from our own backyard, sugar from a cane and nothing GMO.
