National Music Centre announces Studio Bell After Hours

March 01, 2017

Studio Bell is launching a new nighttime music and exhibition event series geared towards music fans 18 years of age and older.

Join the National Music Centre (NMC) for the launch of its new After Hours series on Friday, March 24, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Whether a first visit to NMC’s exhibitions or a return trip, this evening will feature the fun and interactivity visitors love at Studio Bell, but geared towards an adult audience.

This is not your typical night at the museum. We’ll be turning down the lights, turning up the tunes, and inviting you to explore five floors of exhibitions and interactives.

Studio Bell After Hours will include:

  • Live DJs, including selections from Overland (house, techno), Jamal (chill beats, hip hop), and electronic improv project P.E.C.O.
  • Massive dance party in Studio Bell’s second level performance hall.
  • Instrument interactives, games, and music experiments in Soundbox.
  • Pop-up bars and bites. *Cash only. ATM located on site.
  • Chill-out lounge on East Village Skybridge.

“Opening our doors outside of regular hours allows more people to check us out,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs. “Taking some of our education programs and tweaking them for an adult audience allows us to have some fun and host a party in this beautiful space. And we’re excited to turn up the music a bit too!”

Whether it’s a special night out, or a pre-game with friends, Studio Bell After Hours is the newest addition to Calgary’s nightlife scene.

Tickets for Studio Bell After Hours are $18 and $14 for students (18+) and seniors. Please visit for details on the entire night’s events and to purchase your tickets in advance.

Admission to Studio Bell After Hours is included with NMC Membership, so purchase your membership online today! Details at

The next two installments of Studio Bell After Hours will be on Friday, April 21 and Friday, May 26.
