How To Start The Chase

This is it – the day has come. Are you ready to start Chasing Summer?


Plan your day – summertime in Alberta can be a gorgeous thing to experience, but we all know how quickly it can go from sunny to damp! So make sure to pack your knapsack accordingly for a day out at Max Bell Centre Festival Grounds! Have a look at our Rules and Guidelines and make sure you’ve got all the essentials sorted. It not only makes your Chase much more pleasant, but gets you through security in much less time! Also follow us on social media (FacebookTwitterInstagram) for regular weather and event updates, and pay attention to any special messages from the stages.


Public transit is your best option to get to the Max Bell Centre Festival Grounds – take the C-Train to Barlow – Max Bell Blue Line Station. You can also take a trip on the shuttle bus from Marlborough Mall to the site (more info here)  – it runs every 10 minutes starting at 12 noon until 12 midnight – and remember to catch it back to the mall from the pick-up & drop off zone along Barlow Trail SE, where there are also taxis. We strongly advise against parking in the residential area, as doing so will be at your own risk of getting towed.


Be sure to stay hydrated through the entire day – we have free water stations throughout the site. Take regular breaks and rest your dancing feet, and please make sure to eat well – we have a large variety of food trucks on site that cater to a wide range of dietary desires, even vegan! Stay in touch with your friends, and make sure to have a designated meeting point in case you get separated. Most importantly, if you or someone you notice needs help, ask one of our event staff or security members for assistance immediately! We have fully trained professional medical staff on site to help you. No problem is too great or small – your well-being is our top priority! But please remember, Chasing Summer enforces a zero-tolerance policy toward illegal substances – there is no safe drug and no safe dosage.


Chasing Summer is about coming together to celebrate and share in a common positive experience. It is a safe space for all kinds of people to enjoy music and community. Be friendly, be open and be welcoming to everyone you meet this weekend, and take that attitude out into the world when you leave the site. Respect our neighbours who have welcomed us into their area and avoid causing any undue hindrance to their community. Have fun, enjoy the Chase….

Meet The MC: Jon “Jersey” Goldman

Chasing Summer is excited to welcome the voice of Las Vegas’ nightlife as the official MC for our fifth anniversary, Jon “Jersey” Goldman.

Known as the voice of Vegas Nightlife, Jersey has been hyping up crowds at the biggest parties, with the biggest names around. Anyone who’s walked into a nightclub in world famous Vegas hotels like MGM Grand, Caesers Palace and Aria to see Tiësto or many other top tier DJs will recognize Jersey. As Mood Director for some of the world’s largest nightclubs, he’s responsible for making sure every guest has the time of their life.

His career started humbly enough in costume, performing over 40 mascots in the past 15 years. But it was his talents on the mic that propelled him to the attention of Las Vegas, emceeing over 1000 events so far. His passion to entertain is infectious. As he says, “the nightclub world found me, and now they can’t get rid of me!”

Through his career, Jersey has held court with some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, like Bruno Mars, Wayne Gretzky and Drake, but his journey with Tiësto has proven to be a true milestone. With over 200 appearances together and counting, Jersey has helped the legendary DJ continue to captivate audiences all over the world.

One recent event took Jersey to the Kingsland festival in Tiësto’s homeland of Holland. “That was 3 shows in the matter of 9 hours in 3 different parts of the Netherlands!” Jersey explains. “That was just madness!”

Until Chasing Summer, Jersey has only spent a heartbeat of time in Canada. “I came with a supernatural entertainer for a single performance in Edmonton. Was in Canada for about 15 hours total and didn’t really get to do anything.”

But now, Jersey has “goosebumps” thinking about the adventure ahead at CSMF2017. To see how wild and passionate Canadian dance music fans can be, particularly when they’re being rocked by one of the most spectacular lineups in the festival’s history, is an adventure he can’t wait to enjoy.

“Some of the best party animals wave that Canada flag up high! [Chasing Summer has] such a stacked lineup of DJs that will really take the fans on a ride with the energy they bring. But ask any successful DJ and they’ll tell you they feed off the crowd! Can’t wait to feel the stage bounce… half from the bass of the music, and half from the fans jumping up and down! Let’s gooooooooo!!!”
