YEG Stage – Live Music Program

Experience the best in local music!

We’re proud to showcase emerging musicians and provide them the stage to share their talent with the world. YEG was the first airport in Canada to launch a permanent live music program in 2004. YEG Stage celebrates local musicians, giving them an opportunity to share their music with a captivated audience, performing on stages at the airport. Their performances entertain passengers, visitors and airport team members.
