BreakOut West 2019

BreakOut West 2019 will be held in Whitehorse, YT, from October 2-6! BreakOut West is a four-day music conference, a three-night multi-genre showcase festival, the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards Brunch, the Western Canadian Music Awards Reception, and a Kick-off Concert for music lovers of all ages. All venues are in close proximity, have easy access, appropriate capacities and existing local live music audiences.

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.
