Join the Chase with some of the biggest DJ’s in the world at Western Canada’s largest EDM event. Chasing Summer Festival returns to Calgary this August for two epic days of chart-topping tracks and summer vibes. ‘Living in the prairies of Canada’, winter dominates the calendar while the most desired season of summer is significantly shorter in comparison. Chasing Summer Festival celebrates the passion of holding onto the Summer, which Canadian’s love so dearly.
