BreakOut West 2020
BreakOut West is moving online for 2020! This year, the annual festival and conference was set to take place in Winnipeg, MB from September 30 to October 4. In response to the ongoing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, BOW 2020 will be making the shift to a virtual event, bringing attendees a 15-day immersive online experience that provides artists and industry the opportunity to expand their careers through informative keynotes and panel discussions, mentorship meetings, networking mixers, wellness moments and new music discovery.
BreakOut West is the primary event hosted by the Western Canadian Music Alliance – an organization created by the Music Industry Associations of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory, and Nunavut – to promote and celebrate western Canadian music. Each year the event is held in a different member region on a rotational basis. The Western Canadian Music Alliance values excellence, boldness, integrity, inclusivity and passion; values that carry us through all of our event vision and work with artists and industry.
