Sixteen Manitoba Acts Head To NXNE

Posted on

Manitoba's musical population will dwindle a bit in June as 16 local acts head east to the 10th annivesary of the North By Northeast music conference in Toronto, June 10-12.

The bands chosen to showcase at NXNE represent the Manitoba music industry's impressive diversity, performing in various downtown venues across the city as well as attending the the 9th annual Manitoba BBQ, presented by MARIA and Manitoba Film & Sound. The Manitoba BBQ has developed the reputation of being one of the hottest industry parties at the annual conference.

Endearing Records will also hold its own showcase, in conjunction with MapleNationwide distribution, featuring Novillero and some of its non-Manitoban roster, include Meligrove Band and Stirling.

The Western Canadian Music Awards will also be hosting its own showcase at Quentin's Tavern on June 10, featuring performances by Easily Amused and many more.

In addition to showcasing, the NXNE conference sessions are available to help artists make contact with an international group of conference-goers from all aspects of the music industry, from other artists, booking agents and managers to lawyers, accountants and record company presidents.
