For Acts from Manitoba to Build Industry Connections at FOCUS Wales, The Great Escape, New Skool Rules, and a Canadian Music Showcase in London

Manitoba Music is gearing up for a busy season of Manitoba Music Export events this month featuring a stellar roster of homegrown talent. The not-for-profit, member-driven music industry association will be supporting opportunities for export-ready music entrepreneurs and connecting them to influential industry contacts in key music markets in the UK and Europe.

Four acts from Manitoba are set to perform at tastemaker industry events including FOCUS Wales in Wrexham, The Great Escape in Brighton, New Skool Rules in Rotterdam, and a special showcase of Canadian artists in London. Each performer has been earning accolades, awards, and nods from international media, and expanding their teams to include labels, publishers, agents, and more. 

Pop singer/songwriter Cassidy Mann has showcase spots at FOCUS Wales, Canada House at The Great Escape, and London. Folk singer/songwriter Slow Leaves will make his debut at The Great Escape playing Canada House amidst several European tour dates. Hip hop jazz collective Super Duty Tough Work will follow up a pair of London shows with a showcase at The Great Escape. Emerging hip hop artist YSN Fab will take the stage at Canada House at New Skool Rules in Rotterdam. 

Through participation at industry events like these, Manitoba Music is able to increase the connection between our province’s music industry and the broader national and international industry, which is vital to the career advancement of Manitoba artists and industry professionals and contributes to the growth and development of Manitoba’s economy. Manitoba Music Export is funded by FACTOR and the Government of Canada, and Manitoba Film & Music.
