Music PEI Week
The 16th annual Music PEI Awards and Music PEI Week will once again be celebrated during the May Run Music Festival and the Canadian Song Conference taking place May 10–14, 2017.

Submissions for the Music PEI Awards, Showcases and the Canadian Songwriter Challenge are now open until December 15th, 2016 at 5:00pm AT. Each year Music PEI Board, Staff and Committees review the awards to insure they address industry and community needs and trends.

This year a new award was added. The Community Contributor is an award designed to celebrate those artists who have contributed significantly to their communities through their music. Musicians are often called upon by charities, fundraisers, benefits and community events and PEI musicians are some of the best at it.

Other minor tweaks and changes are outlined in the Submission Guidelines.

The May Run Music Festival has been moved a week earlier this year but will continue to provide the largest annual celebration of Prince Edward Island’s music industry and community. The festival will include showcases and concerts featuring many of the Music PEI Award Nominees. More details will be announced soon. For all of the latest details, visit the official May Run Music Festival website.

The Canadian Song Conference will also be entering its third year and is maturing into an excellent industry conference, gaining an international reputation and providing important information, networking opportunities and contacts for developing multiple and alternate revenue streams in order to create sustainable careers. Music PEI recruits delegates, speakers and buyers from around the world to attend. More details will be announced soon.
