Festivals 2015 Canadian Music Week (Toronto, ON) Posted by Haley • March 16, 2015

Now that the JUNO festivities are over and done with, it is time to get excited for next the major event going down in Canada. And by that, we mean the 2015 Canadian Music Week.

Canadian Music Week is “Canada’s leading annual entertainment event dedicated to the expression and growth of the country’s music, media and entertainment industries.”

Now in its 33rd year, Canadian Music Week is made up of couple of events: three information-intensive conferences, a trade exposition, a film festival, a comedy festival, four award shows and most importantly, a music festival.

The lineup for this year’s music festival is loaded with so many amazing Canadian and non-Canadian acts, it will have you screaming before its even showtime.

At first glance, some of the names that pop up include 3x JUNO Award winner, Kiesza, Joey Bada$$, Lights, Billy Talent, Faith No More, and many many more.

The 2015 Canadian Music Week, which will be held at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel and over 60 downtown Toronto venues, will kick off May 1st and it would continue all the way through May 10th. It is without question the most exciting event to be at – we would know, we have attended as fans a few times!
