New Music West
The New Music West Festival & Conference is the largest new music festival in Western Canada, showcasing over 200 bands during a five night, multi-venue music festival. NMW 2008, running May 14-18th, will mark our 17th year. Music industry professionals and fans will experience a music extravaganza that includes educational workshops, a conference, networking events and the latest in new and emerging talent from around the world.
I have been interning at New Music West working on the International showcases. We have Australia and the Netherlands signed on to send some bands over for the festival which is awesome. We are also in talks with France, New Zealand, Switzerland and Iceland to send over some artists. Hopefully they will be able to participate.
