Canadian Music Week

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Canadian Music Week (or CMW) is an industry conference and music festival held over ten days in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


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 3,000 national and international delegates.

2015 was CMW's 33rd year, and is the single longest running multi-day Canadian music and media event. It manages to consistently bring together more than 3,000 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. In January 2017, Jim Beam along with Canadian Music WeekCanada launched Jim Beam Make History Talent Search.[1]
