Festivals > Canadian Music Week

Toronto, Canada | Apr 18, 2017 - May 22, 2017 http://cmw.net/

After showcasing Australian talent including The Jezabels, The Falls, Jordi Lane, King Gizzard & the Wizzard Lizzard, Blue King Brown, The Beards, Kate Miller Heidke, DZ Deathrays, The Lazys, Busby Marou, Emma Louise and You Am I, Canadian Music Week 2015 will see the burgeoning region of Australia take the international focus.

Australia has a unique musical ecosystem which does not have to rely upon global sales, global distribution or artist success abroad in order to be successful,” said CMW President Neill Dixon. “Their labels are successful. Their distribution foundation is strong. The amount of profitable festivals and music venues remains the highest in the world. The continent is an excellent outlet for Canadian bands to remain active in otherwise down seasons. The economy is motivated, the Australian dollar is climbing and somewhat stable so people can part with discretionary spending. There is a lot that we can learn from Australia and we plan to explore and uncover as much of it as we can at CMW 2015.”

After establishing and building a significant footprint for Australian artists and industry at Canadian Music Week over the last 5 years, the time is ripe for us to proudly wear the ‘Spotlight Country’ mantle in 2015,” said Millie Millgate, Executive Producer, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA. “We look forward to consolidating the partnerships and networks already developed with our kindred music nation, whilst forging new opportunities and greater access for more of the incredible talent that’s exploding out of Australia.”

Delegations from Australia have long been part of Canadian Music Week and have resulted in a number of business prospects and transactions for Canadian labels, managers and artists. The 2014 edition saw the highest representation of Australian artists ever at the festival, with SOUNDS AUSTRALIA producing three showcasing events across the week; Sound Gallery, Beat Pie and The Aussie BBQ.
