Now in its 31st year, Canadian Music Week taking place from March 19-24 in Toronto is recognized as one of the premiere entertainment showcases in North America and events in Toronto. The thing that many might not know is that the event has grown into much more than just bands playing shows.
CMW combines conferences, award shows, a film festival and a trade exhibition in addition to the more than 1000 bands that will be playing across 60 live music venues in downtown Toronto. These venues range from popular bars to trendy clothing stores and cafes.
The Festival is used primarily by new artists to have their music heard by the various record reps who are around in greater number during the Festival.
That is in addition to the bigger acts that the Festival brings out and this year’s event will be headlined by Rihanna and perennial Canadian rockers, Hedley.
