Festival Dates and Hours


Chasing Summer will be held on August 1 & 2, 2020

Our festival site is on the grounds surrounding the Max Bell Centre, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Calgary is one of Canada’s most vibrant cities, known for its welcoming atmosphere. Although the site is situated near Memorial Drive, there is no parking at the site, nor is parking permitted in the nearby residential area. So please take advantage of the C-Train, which stops nearby at Barlow – Max Bell station, taxis or ride-sharing.

The gates will open each day at 1PM. The event will run from 1PM until 11PM each day.

Box office and will call hours will be released closer to the festival date.



Do I get a wristband with my ticket?

Yes. This year, wristbands purchased online before July 27 will be couriered to you via Canada Post – there will be no will call option for these orders. This will help prevent long wait times at will call and entry, so you’ll be enjoying the event sooner.

Wristbands will be sent out via Expedited Parcel approximately one month prior to the event. If you purchase your ticket after July 17, you will have to pick up your wristband at the site box office during the festival.

Wristband shipping will begin on the first week of June.

Please have your wristbands shipped to an address where you will be able to receive them in person, as the package will require a signature. If you do not receive your wristbands within 1 week of the event, please contact Front Gate Tickets support at

Can I update or check on my order information?

Yes! Once you have placed an order through Front Gate Tickets, visit and click “Sign In” at the top of the page. Once signed in, you can review or adjust information like your shipping address.
