If you’re a musician and want the chance to be part of a whole week’s worth of music, music, music! Then check out https://cmw.net/music/apply/ and apply to be part of the 2020 Canadian Music Week in Toronto! It’s a great start for up and coming musicians to showcase their work, meet with industry professionals and bond with fellow musicians.
The best part about applying for this awesome experience is you have nothing to lose! Actually you have something to gain even if you aren’t selected this time. Just for applying you will “receive a two-year membership to CAAMA and one pass per group/act to attend the three-day music conference at the Sheraton Hotel.” If you are selected to showcase your killer talent, you and your badass bandmates will receive a “three-day music pass for each member of your group/act, and a discounted rate for management, agent, or publicist.” Sounds pretty sweet to me!
It takes place from May 19-23 and if you want to volunteer and get all the perks that go along with it, you can apply for that at https://cmw.net/music/volunteers/. Whatever your volunteer jam, there’s a position for you! As for jobs actually AT the festival there’s anything from stage managing to assistant stage managing or from managing the box office to being a part of their high energy street team. If you’re more into the conference scene, they’ve got opportunities like registration assisting, conference room monitoring and public relations assisting.
The event is brought to you by the Amsterdam Brewery and draws top industry professionals and many and I mean MANY of them. 3,000 to be exact. The Canadian Music Week has been running since 1981 and according to Wikipedia is “the single longest running multi-day Canadian music and media event.” Don’t miss your chance to check out flourishing up and coming musicians at some of Toronto’s trendiest clothing stores, cafes, bars, and halls. Anyone want to make a trip out of it? Let me know!
