Perform at the showcase stages

Northern Touch Music Festival has expanded to include free showcase performances at the Cube in Old Market Square, late-night after-parties events taking place venues in the heart of the historic Exchange District, along with pop-up DJ performances and mixers. The festival runs July long weekend with hometown, Canadian and international acts. These performances will be the chance for showcasing artists to open for our headline acts and for artists from around the world to demonstrate their skills and receive feedback from music industry delegates attending Canada's only 3-day professional development and educational focused hip-hop/R&B/soul showcase festival.

Networking and career development

Network at the mixer events and take part in industry sessions including an exclusive opportunity for showcasing artists to sit one-on-one with industry delegates flown in from across Canada, the U.S., and Europe. Including the one-on-one sessions, there will be asset reviews, intensive workshop, and guided development programs. Open to all artists to have a chance to have their music heard by representatives from different sectors of the music business.
