Welcome to Calgary's Music Mile!

It’s a mile – a Music Mile - from Studio Bell to the Blues Can on 9th Avenue SE!

The coolest stretch of live music in Calgary connects two of our best-loved and most walkable neighbourhoods, Inglewood and East Village. Here you’ll find a growing energy of talented musicians building community around top-notch, accessible, live entertainment every day and night, year-round, in over 20 live music venues.

 

Walking this mile-long streetscape and blocks nearby, your senses are amplified as you feel the trendy and soulful vibe of homegrown music venues sprinkled amongst celebrated restaurants, shops, galleries, green spaces and event sites.

 

Explore Music Mile, where music and community come alive!

JUNE NEWSLETTER 2021

The Music Mile Newsletter features a different local artist and their favourite playlist every month. 

This month we are joined by Amy Hef!

With Amy’s natural talent, compassion and sense of humour, this multifaceted artist brings a truly unique, energized and interesting vibe to everything she does. The youngest of five kids, born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Amy was raised in Alberta. Since then she has been splitting her time between Alberta, and LA with many successes along the way.

Live performances and recording have been a big part of Amy’s career to date. She’s at home on any stage – from clubs to festivals. Aside from her own highly electrified, engaging performances – she has opened for many artists including Ace of Base, Metric and Everclear. Her fun, fresh, bright, insightful perspective is captured in every song and every live show.
