CHASING SUMMER is one of Canada’s most exciting electronic dance music events, for a very good reason. Not only does it attract some of the biggest and best performers in the world of dance music, but we really value the community it creates. When everyone joins The Chase, they share a beautiful adventure.

To make your Chase as incredible as possible, we’ve put together some important tips for you. Please read through this entirely before heading out!


EVENT INFO + GETTING TO THE SITE

UPDATE: There will now be a taxi drop off and pickup zone on Barlow Trail. You no longer need to go up to Century Rise SE as previously stated. Use of Calgary Transit is strongly urged, however, as the most efficient way of travelling to and from the festival. See below…

Chasing Summer 2016 takes place outdoors on the Max Bell Centre Festival Grounds, located off Deerfoot Trail in central southeast Calgary, in the community of Radisson Heights.

The gates for Chasing Summer open at 1 PM each day, and the music ends at 11 PM each night.

Box office and will call will be open at 11 AM to on Saturday and Sunday.

Parking is not permitted on the site, so we advise using Calgary Transit to travel to and from the event. Ride the C-Train to Barlow/Max Bell station, then head south through the pedestrian tunnel to the Max Bell location. Please visit CalgaryTransit.com for schedule and route info.

If you wish to park and ride, we recommend using the Calgary Zoo station, which is one stop away from Barlow/Max Bell station. Parking rates will apply. Additional park and ride options can be found here.

This is an 18+ licensed event – please ensure you have government issued photo ID on you, such as:

  • Alberta Operator’s Licence (Drivers License)
  • Alberta Identification Card
  • Passport
  • Armed Forces Identification Card
  • Out-of-Province Photo Driver’s Licence
  • Certificate of Indian Status
  • Canadian Citizenship Card
  • Permanent Resident Card

There will be ATMs on site, as well as free water stations.


EARLY WRISTBAND PICKUP

Advance ticket holders will be able to pick up their wristbands ahead of the event on Thursday and Friday at the Chasing Summer site box office, between 12 NOON and 7 PM each day. They may also be picked up at the Chasing Summer official pre-party at Marquee on Friday, from 8 PM until 12 AM.

To pick up your wristband, you must present your ticket (digital or print at home), and if you are picking up a will call order, you will need your photo ID (as outlined above) and the credit card used to purchase.

If you chose will call and need to have someone else pick up your ticket and wristband, you must supply that person a signed letter of authorization, plus a photocopy of your ID and credit card used to purchase the ticket.

You may pick up multiple wristbands, as long as you have the tickets, or follow the will call instructions above for each purchase.

If you chose digital delivery for your tickets, and have not yet received them, please contact Front Gate Tickets Support here or call 1-888-512-SHOW (7469)

He has also served as Tiësto’s exclusive designer for the last decade, creating a dynamic visual counterpart to the Dutch superstar’s unpredictable musical adventures, whether it’s a small club or a major festival.

We can’t wait to see what de Puusseleir will do to make this year’s Chase more exciting than ever!
