About the festival:

“Burly Calling” was a joke started by the Saint Alvia Cartel in 2007 to make money for tour support. The original concept was a “joke” tour across their home town of Burlington from one of end of the city to another. This highly successful event took different shapes over the next few years bringing us to the current inception it is now.
BURLY CALLING has evolved itself into a showcase spanning over 3 days of some of Canada’s coolest &ground breaking artists. A 3 day party/pub crawl throughout Burlington’s Down Town bar scene. Littered with English pubs and hot spots alike, no rock n roll filled venue is farther than a stumble away at BURLY CALLING.
