ABOUT CANADIAN SONG CONFERENCE
Music PEI will present the 2024 Canadian Song Conference from May 27th – 29th, 2024. This will be the 10th anniversary of this conference which explores creating multiple revenue streams and songwriting. In today’s music industry, it is challenging to develop a sustainable career and creating as many revenue streams as possible is critical to achieving that. Those revenue streams include licensing, royalties, publishing, streaming, syncs, label deals, and merch sales. The CSC attempts to take some of the mystery out of these opportunities.
In addition to the panels, Music PEI has created the Listening Sessions, opportunities for PEI artists to present their recorded music to the delegates in a business development opportunity. Delegates recruited for the event include music supervisors, publishers, labels, PRO’s, social platforms and more.
This project is funded by Skills PEI and the Work Experience PEI Program. In order to be eligible, applicants must be:
