CMW Explorer/Explorer+ Wristbands and tickets are available via TicketWeb, Rotate This and Soundscapes.
In addition to the showcase, Audiotree North is partnering with the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) to present a pre-event celebration, open exclusively to Canadian Music Week delegates. The event will premiere live music videos from six artists, shot in Toronto at the Great Hall, the Longboat and Revolution Recording. This pilot session featured PUP, Lido Pimienta, Casper Skulls, Pony, Magic Giant and Begonia. Attendees will also have an opportunity to meet members of Audiotree, Audiotree North and TCS.
