If some of you were wondering how you made it through March with only a St. Patrick’s day related hangover, it’s because the brains behind Canadian Music Week had the brilliant idea to move the entire festival to May! From Tuesday May 6th to Saturday May 10th Toronto will be happily invaded by musical acts from around the world, who hope to perform to warmer, happier, spring fueled crowds. This is especially great news for the multitude of acts from down under that will be brought over by Sounds Australia. If you’ve always wanted to check out some amazing music from our commonwealth companions AND check out what CMW has to offer, then this contest is for you! Read on to learn what you can win in Addicted’s Sounds Australia+Canadian Music Week Prizepack!
Sounds Australia’s mission in life is to promote and share Australian music with the rest of the world, and that’s exactly what they’ll be doing at CMW. Sounds Australia will be bringing over twenty Aussie artists to Toronto to play at CMW this year, including Mia Dyson, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, You Am I, and many more! They will also be hosting their infamous Aussie BBQ on May 10th at the Horseshoe as well as two other showcases; Beat Pie (May 8th at Czehoskis) and Sound Gallery (May 9 at The Mariott Lounge). It’s going to be a raucous great time at each and every event, and on top of that, you and a friend will be able to check out the rest of the incredible music that CMW will have to offer!
