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!

East Village Activities


When you're visiting East Village, make sure to check out (Art)ios - a beautiful combination of Art + Patios! CMLC has brought together six East Village restaurants and six artists to turn dining patios into art installations. You may want to patio hop and take in all six reimagined spaces!

To keep up to date on all activities in the East Village follow them @eastvillageyyc on Instagram and Twitter, and East Village Calgary on Facebook. Click here for their web calendar! (photo courtesy of Calgary Municipal Land Corporation)


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

This month we are joined by The Rondel Roberts Band!

Known for their energetic live performances and eclectic brand of soul, The Rondel Roberts Band has long been a staple of the live music scene in Calgary. In 2020, with releasing music in mind, the band hooked up with veteran Producer Trey Mills. Collectively, they have all channeled their experience and diverse musical background to create groovy, feel-good, soulful music all with the band's uniquely organic sound. In February 2021, The Rondel Roberts Band released their first single “Its Gotta Be Me” a groovy, bright, and “dancey” ode to the old school love song.
