SAVK – Calgary
Nuela Charles – Edmonton
PORT JUVEE – Calgary

The Alberta Top 12 will be performing live at the first ever all-day PEAK Performance Project BBQ at the Palomino Smokehouse in Calgary, on Saturday July 19th. Links to free downloads of the artist’s songs will be available on site.

The PEAK Performance Project is designed to educate, promote, develop and launch the careers of some of Alberta and British Columbia’s up and coming artists. It also hopes to foster the Alberta and BC music industries and create a sense of community amongst artists and music professionals. While the projects are run as separate programs in each province, there is an incredible opportunity to create bridges between Alberta and BC though the shared educational experience at the Rockridge Canyon Bootcamp. Top Prizes this year for the Alberta Project include a $100,953 top prize, $75,000 second prize, $50,000 third prize, as well as a $5,000 base camp award given to each Top 12 band to help them with their career development.
