Canadian Music Week

Cover March 4, 2011

Canadian Music Week began in 1981, and has grown to become one of Canada’s largest and most influential media and music conferences. It draws top industry professionals to participate in a four-day program of activities. Designed to stimulate the exchange of market intelligence, increase dialogue and provide networking opportunities, Canadian Music Week continues to present the ideal platform for more than 2,000 national and international delegates.

CMW is the single longest running multi-day Canadian music festival that manages to consistently bring together more than 2,000 music industry professionals for the week's events - combining conferences, award shows, & one of Canada’s biggest "New Music" festivals. Throughout the duration of the event, performers put on shows at venues ranging from popular bars and halls, to trendy clothing stores and cafes. Many emerging new bands use the festival as an opportunity to 'get spotted' by the A&R reps that are around in greater than average numbers during the festival. 

Now in its 29th year, CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK is recognized as one of the premier entertainment events in North America focusing on the business of music. We bring together Sound Recording, New Media and Broadcast for one spectacular week of events… Combining informative, intensive conferences, cutting edge trade exhibition, award shows, film festival and Canada’s biggest New Music Festival. Canadian Music Fest spans 5 nights of performances, with more than 800 showcasing bands at 60 live music venues in downtown Toronto.  All convention functions take place at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

CMWCMWNeill Dixon, President of CMW, has been busy making this music industry get ready once again to invade Toronto, and the streets, bars and restaurants will be filled with the whos who of the business.

There is much to see and music to be heard so buy a wristband, visit the clubs, check out the exhibitors at The Royal York Hotel. You won`t be disappointed.
