In 2018, we are pleased to showcase over 70 acts from across Canada and abroad for over 30 delegates in the music industry coming from Canada, USA, and Europe. We provide opportunities for acts to educate themselves and grow their professional careers with panels, performances, and networking opportunities.
Panels will cover a range of topics including discussions about booking shows, release strategies and marketing, songwriting, and production techniques. We introduce artists to foundational education as well as provide export level opportunities for acts to gain the information they need to succeed in the business.
We will also be providing one-on-one meetings with delegates for selected showcasing artists who submit and have a demo listening session for all artists who perform at the festival. These hands-on events help artists to understand how to take their career to the next level by giving them actionable goals and targets to help achieve success.
What is the Northern Touch Music Festival & Conference?
NTMF was created with the same DIY spirit, drive & resilience that helped shape Canadian hip-hop into what it has become today. We pay homage to the pioneers of Canadian hip-hop and guide ourselves using the same principles of our past artists and cultural trailblazers, to grow the Canadian industry and create tangible opportunities for artists seeking self-development. We put artists first. We break down barriers to accessing education and professional development and we bring value to indie artists worldwide.
We acknowledge the hard work and the struggle that each member of the Rascalz faced from the Canadian music industry, to fight for a space for hip-hop in Canada and the impact that has had on thousands of artists over the years. We thank you for what you did and continue to do.
Becoming a donor to the Northern Touch Music Festival allows us to provide unique and diverse programming for Winnipeg's most educational and musical festival. We are here to help the musicians develop professionally and creatively while entertaining festival attendees with some of North America's finest emerging and established acts. Help us produce the best festival we can. Thank you!
