The 2016 Western Canadian Music Awards will be held
Thursday, October 13th in Regina, SK.
The 14th annual awards show and concert is the flagship event of BreakOut West and a celebration of all the aspects of western Canadian music.
The awards show is enjoying a format update this year, kicking off the BreakOut West weekend instead of ending it, and rolling into a more concert-focused event with fewer award presentations and more music.
This year’s event will have two main headliners, Brett Kissel, who will also be hosting the event, and Regina’s own, Colin James. Colin James will not only headline the show, but is also this year’s Hall of Fame Inductee. Brett Kissel is nominated for both BreakOut Artist of the Year and Country Artist of the Year, as well as his latest recording drawing a nomination for an Audio Engineering Western Canadian Music Award.
