Seven reasons why we can't wait for the Calgary Stampede

With history and tradition that stems back to the late 1800s, the Calgary Stampede is one of the world's longest running events.

But, we like to play the rumour game, so we've come up with 10 artists and bands who we think may be fitting out the bill for Laneway the very least, we'd love to see them on it.
