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!
