The four-day event is comprised of a three-day music conference, a three-night multi-genre music festival, the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards Brunch and the Western Canadian Music Awards Gala.
BreakOut West and the Western Canadian Music Awards are the primary events hosted by the Western Canadian Music Alliance (WCMA) – an organization created by the Music Industry Associations (MIA’s) of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, The Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory – to promote and celebrate western Canadian music. Each year the event is held in a different western Canadian region on a rotational basis.
Submission deadline is March 13th.
BOW has a brand new submission platform this year, for assistance related to eligibility, submission requirements, timelines, payments, etc.
