Since the inception of Nova Scotia Music Week (NSMW) in 1997, the music community has gathered together to participate in a range of business training and networking opportunities while celebrating our artists and industry professionals. NSMW is held over four days in November with workshops, receptions, over 100 showcases, an international and domestic buyers program, B2B networking opportunities, and the Music and Industry Awards.

The Truro/Colchester region will be the home of Nova Scotia Music Week for the next three years. The annual music festival and conference has typically moved around the province each year but after two very successful editions of the event held in Truro in 2014 and 2016, Music Nova Scotia has reached a deal with the local host committee to keep the event in the Truro area for an extended stay.

More announcements on venues, events and programming will be made in the coming weeks.

While some conference events are specific to the industry, all components of NSMW are open to the public. Anyone can purchase a delegate’s pass and all events are open to the ticket-buying public. NSMW is a wonderful testimony as to how public performance, workshops, and seminars can blend. The showcasing festival and concert components are aimed at presenting the talents of Nova Scotian artists to the public and industry professionals, while the awards presentations are a celebration of achievement and provide heightened public recognition. Conference topics range from presenting core industry know-how to exploring current and emerging issues facing the music industry, along with potential approaches and solutions.

Early advance delegate passes and festival wristbands are on sale now. Individual tickets will go on sale in the Fall and will also be available at the door for $15.00.
