MusicOntario @ New Skool Rules 2023

Fri 12th - Sun 14th May 2023
Rotterdam, NL

CIMA, MusicOntario, Music Nova Scotia/Nova Scotia Music Week & Women in Music Canada present:
Canada at New Skool Rules 2023
May 12-14, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Canada is heading back to New Skool Rules in Rotterdam this spring, and we want to bring a fresh crop of incredible Canadian artists and music companies to showcase, do business, and network!

New Skool is the biggest conference and festival for Hip Hop, Rap, R&B, Reggae, and Soul in the world, so CIMA, Music Ontario, Music Nova Scotia/Nova Scotia Music Week, and Women in Music Canada are joining forces to build a comprehensive experience for Canadians ready to export to the EU.

We’ll be hosting a showcase, networking session, and our legendary boat cruise for a chance to really get to know the international delegates and pros. Stay tuned for info about a post-New Skool Rules business event in Rotterdam to get to know the market that much better.

We’ll also be hosting an IG live with New Skool’s cofounder, Henca Maduro, to help you prepare for attending the event as a first timer, whether you’re an artist or an industry pro.

If you’re interested in performing, apply here by February 12, 2023 – we have a special extension just for Canadians, so get the apps in ASAP, and start thinking about travel, grants, budgeting, and strategy, which we’ll also host a webinar for in the coming months.
