Calgary – On Monday, July 8, Coca-Cola IgNITES the Night at the Calgary Stampede! Be a part of the party with hot music, bright lights and adrenaline – now later than ever before. Guests can ride the midway until 1 a.m. – experience an incredible music lineup at the Coca-Cola Stage and The Big Four Roadhouse – plus witness an unbelievable one-day-only tightrope stunt by Nik Wallenda. It’s one exclusive evening of events happening every hour all night long!

“IgNITE is a night of shareable moments and experiences that you can only get here at the Calgary Stampede,” says Kyle Corner, Manager, Entertainment Programming at The Calgary Stampede. “Starting at 6 p.m., there will be experiences igniting all over the Stampede Park from incredible music, adrenaline fueled performances, special deals and much more, that will make for an incredible party lasting all night long.”

The music lineup will be on fire with performances by CLASSIFIED at The Big Four Roadhouse, T-Pain and artist Lil’ Berete on the Coca-Cola Stage; and the music won’t stop there as 4KORNERS, the official DJ of the Toronto Raptors, will be spinning high energy beats and pumping up the party on the Midway all night long!
