The Western Canadian Music Alliance (WCMA), has announced details for the next BreakOut West festival and conference, moving the previously announced fall 2021 dates to February 2022.  While the world continues to navigate new ways of living, the music continues to play. Following a successful online delivery of their 2020 festival, BreakOut West are thrilled to announce that the next conference and festival will take place from February 2 through February 6, 2022 in the host city of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The winners of the Western Canadian Music Awards will be announced this October, with nominee info to be released soon. Registration and showcase submission for the 2022 BreakOut West Festival are open now. Participants can enjoy early bird pricing until April 30, and the deadline for submissions is June 10. Access the festival registration portal here. Submissions for the festival are open to artists from all western Provinces and Territories as well as Nunavut Territory. 
“While we enjoyed bringing BreakOut West Home Edition to musicians, industry and fans remotely in 2020, we are missing everyone’s faces and have made this decision to move the live event,” says BreakOut West Executive Director, Robyn Stewart. “We believe, to the best of our predictions, that this will allow us to safely come together to celebrate, develop and discover live music again. We look forward to everyone joining us in February 2022.”

The deadline to apply is June 10.

Early bird pricing until April 30.
