For the 50+ showcasing bands attending BreakOut West this year, performing live during the festival can be a career changing experience. Their music will be seen by some of the top industry delegates in Canada; and with over 40 international industry delegates attending this year, the opportunity to expand their reach globally has never been closer.

For the first time in BreakOut West history, the event is providing digital marketing grants to all showcasing musicians. Thanks to the generous support of Tourism Kelowna and Destination BC, each showcasing artist will be provided $100 to promote their BreakOut West showcase through their own social media channels.


Tourism Kelowna is thrilled to partner with BreakOut West on this festival, in its return to Kelowna after 8 years.  Music and wine are the perfect pairing – and event tourism helps us reach new audiences who generate overnight visits and local spending.  We will amplify the festival’s social media, inviting the 270,000 Facebook fans who are passionate about Western Canadian music to come to the Central Okanagan and experience our spectacular four season playground.” - Lisanne Ballantyne, Tourism Kelowna President & CEO
