The Saskatoon EX takes place this year from August 8th to 13th at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon. It’s Saskatchewan’s biggest summer festival with rides, food, and a different musical act at the SaskTel Grandstand each night FREE with admission! This presents an awesome opportunity for music fans in and around Saskatoon to check out some quality live music they may otherwise not have the money for. Performer announcements for this year already include Johnny Reid on the 8th, Blue Rodeo on the 11th, and Big Sugar on the 12th. Performer news will continue to be made throughout June, with the fourth one having been this morning at 7:15a.m.
On Wednesday, August 9th, Alessia Cara will be performing at the SaskTel Grandstand! Gates will open at 7:00p.m. and the show will begin at 8:30p.m.. Alessia Cara is a 20-year-old Canadian singer and songwriter who released her debut single “Here” in November of 2015 and has risen to international stardom since. She’s also known for songs such as “Scars to Your Beautiful,” “Wild Things,” and most recently “Stay.” This is bound to be an amazing show! If the schedule follows past years, there is still one more performer to be announced for the 10th!
Daily general admission at the gate is $16, ages 11–15 get in for $12, and children 10 and under get in for free when accompanied by an adult!

I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
