The cut-off for artist submissions is less than a month away, on June 15, and we are busy sifting through those that have already come through. The opportunity this presents artists can be monumental, and for only the $5 admin fee it is well worth the investment.
Here’s an overview of what successful submissions will receive.
Every artist with a successful submission will be given the opportunity to perform at one of our festival stages during Canada Day weekend, while thousands of Canadians are celebrating #Canada150. Not only will everyday music-lovers be present, but industry professionals from L.A., Toronto and Winnipeg will also be around to hear what you have to offer.
Each showcasing artist will have an opportunity to sit 1-on-1 with an industry delegate and have their music reviewed by a panel of industry professionals, including Damien “Dame” Ritter, President & Co-Founder of Funk Volume, an L.A.-based record label with much success in the indie scene in America. This kind of advice is worth far more than $5!
All artists will receive passes to attend the entire conference, which includes multiple workshops with industry professionals and a whole lot of amazing Canadian performances. This access will allow you to meet other artists who you may decide to collaborate with in the future, and we will have artists from across Canada so it will be an opportunity to expand your network. And of course, it wouldn’t be a successful festival without an epic after-party where you’ll have the opportunity to perform, mix and mingle with industry pros, other artists and Canadian fans.
