If you live in the Toronto area I guess you would have to be a hermit not to know about this. It's just such a huge event I had to mention something about it.
Canada’s biggest New Music Festival with over 500 showcasing bands over 4 nights at 44 live music venues. By night Toronto's most popular clubs and concert halls throw open their doors to industry insiders and the general public to create an electrifying musicfest of discovery. The talented emerging new bands are music to the ears of A&R reps on the lookout for next year's stars. Whether it's the next "big thing" or one of today's hottest concert hit-makers, you'll find what you're looking for at the Festival.
