BreakOut West Announces Back to Live!


BreakOut West is thrilled to be Back To Live! After more than a year off-stage, musicians are finally returning to live performances and BreakOut West is celebrating with a five-week series of concerts, speaking engagements, and digital content from some of the best the western Canadian music industry has to offer.

With the support of FACTOR, from their contribution to the live music sector programming funds, and Bell MTS in Manitoba, artists and guest speakers will take to venues across the western provinces and northern territories through the months of October and November, kicking off on October 25th.

Each week will be dedicated to an individual region by highlighting their diverse local artists, industry insiders, and unique music industry landscape, through in person performances and live panels, as well as digital content, including artist and industry features, and curated playlists. The performances and speakers will also be livestreamed via BreakOut West’s Facebook for audiences across the country to enjoy. See below for the full Back To Live series schedule.
