Over 1,000 artists, 60 venues, 6 nights.
Canada’s largest new music festival is in its 31st year of showcasing some of the hottest acts and emerging Canadian artists. While CMW offers seminars, interviews, mentoring and networking for those leading and shaping our industries—for fans with a passion for new and live music, it is simply one of the best weeks of the year.
From March 19-24th, over 100,000 music fans are drawn to the city of Toronto to embark on the week-long path of music discovery that is Canadian Music Fest. Established as one of the largest and single longest running entertainment events, the festival has earned acclaim for introducing such artists as Metric, Crystal Castles, Arcade Fire, Mother Mother, Alexisonfire, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Ting Tings, AWOL Nation, Bedouin Soundclash, and many more.
With such an extensive list of artists, my advice is this: skip the ones you already know you love (they’ll be back) and take the time to find and discover the best of Canada’s up and coming artists. Here are TVD’s Top 20 recommendations for Canadian Music Fest 2013!
MISE EN SCENE
Thursday, March 21st, 2013 – 11pm at The Bovine Sex Club
Mise En Scene is a lovely and explosive pop rock duo from Winnipeg, Manitoba. What started as a friendship through a shared interest in painting and the arts evolved into a crowning mix of ’60′s pop, alt-country, early punk, and garage rock.
