BreakOut West, the Western Canadian Music Awards, and the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards are the primary events hosted by the Western Canadian Music Alliance – 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. This year, the event will be held in Whitehorse, YK, from October 2-6, 2019. This four-day event is comprised of a 4-day music conference, a 3-night multi-genre music festival, the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards Brunch and the Western Canadian Music Awards Reception.
Apply to showcase at the festival and have your new album considered for a WCMA.
Deadline: March 20, 2019
