Meet @shannonh4rt 💛
You probably recognize this face if you’ve been to our market, because she’s been a vital part of it since the beginning. Curating music, making our equipment work well behind the scenes, and this Saturday, leading the event as coordinator!
Shannon is a teacher, with experience teaching youth the art of DJing, an innovator and community builder. She represents the emerging wave of Calgary DJs that are driven by a DIY ethos and a passion for left field avant-garde dance music.
In addition to appearing at notable venues like
Broken City, Hifi, and Habitat Living Sound, she is also a member of Excursions FM, a group of luminaries leading the charge in the city’s current surge of DIY-venue parties. These parties have become known as hubs of innovation. Over the past half-decade, Shannon has made her mark pushing a hypnotic and raw blend of lofi and minimal techno that sets the standard for others to follow.
Shannon’s passion, aside from music and event planning, is Social Work. She is involved with DanceSafe and other Harm reduction
initiatives within western Canadian electronic music events.
If you’ve got questions, hugs, or a smile to share this weekend, Shannon’s your girl! She will be taking the lead during our event and managing social media. Thank you for all you do! 💛
