MusicOntario @ The Great Escape 2024
May 15-18, 2024 @ The Green Door Store (Brighton, UK)

MusicOntario will be partnering with CIMA to present Ontario artists at Canada House during The Great Escape (TGE) in 2024 in Brighton, UK! We’re celebrating our TENTH year at the event in 2024, where we’ve proudly showcased more than 30 Ontario artists and supported the companies they work with.

The UK is the 3rd largest recorded music market in the world, according IFPI 2021, so TGE presents an important opportunity for artists and companies to showcase, make new contacts, network, and build their international profiles.

The Great Escape is the festival for new music in the UK, showcasing 500 emerging artists from all over the world in 30+ walkable venues across the city. Music industry professionals from across the globe descend on The Great Escape to discover new music and attend the conference run alongside the showcasing component which features panels, keynote speeches, networking opportunities and more.
