Drumheller, Alberta – Known for its outstanding acoustics and stunning vistas that are home to the famous Canadian Badlands Passion Play, The Badlands Amphitheatre (Badlands Amp) is hosting four bands on the weekend of August 25 & 26.

Launched in 2015, the Badlands Amp has quickly gained notoriety as Alberta’s premier outdoor live concert venue. The venue has received two prestigious Travel Alberta Alto awards. Musicians and audiences alike are captivated by the natural geography of the site as well as the intimacy of its 2700 seat outdoor stage.

Unlike live mammoth outdoor concerts where the audience primarily watches performers on a distant video screen, all Badlands Amp seats are within 100 feet of the stage with great site lines and crystal clear sound. A concert surrounded by the incredible Badlands scenery with the sun setting behind the hills is a “must see” musical experience.
