 M FOR MONTREAL @ SXSW 2016 – A DECADE OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR CANADIAN TALENTS

March 2, 2016

M FOR MONTREAL @ SXSW 2016 – A DECADE OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR CANADIAN TALENTS

M for Montreal is thrilled to be flying south to Austin, Texas, to present its 10th export mission at SXSW showcasing the cream of the music crop to the international music marketplace.

M for Montreal is proud to have showcased no less than 115 Canadian talents at South by Southwest since 2007, contributing significantly to the career development of many of them. This is hundreds of profitable business deals created over time, through initiatives we can now safely call a weapon of (M for) Massive exportation!

“ ‘[Montreal] is where I learned how to make music’, Grimes shouts, eliciting more screams. She thanks the M for Montreal festival, host of this headlining show, noting that the ten-year-old event showcased some of her earliest gigs [SXSW 2011].’’ – Grimes, Nov. 21 at Metropolis, via Noisey.

This year, M is proud to partner with CIMA (Canadian Independent Music Association) and Exclaim! Magazine to present over a dozen artists at 2 official SXSW showcases, March 16 and 19. We are also excited to collaborate for the first time with our friends at POP Montreal to host the infamous Poutine Party as the kick off to Saturday night’s festivities.

Wednesday March 16
M starts the week’s events with some of the hottest hip-hop artists on the Canadian scene in a showcase night co-presented by Canadian Blast. The show takes place at Friends Bar, renamed Canada House for the week and acting as an embassy for Canadian talent.
