The Independent Music Business Series is a monthly free seminar and lecture series aiming to enrich the knowledge and expertise of artists, musicians and music service providers in the National Capital region.

This month, join us for “Understanding the Festival City” a panel featuring Peter Macdonald (Chamberfest), Holly Tarrison (Hope Volleyball) and Sami Elkout (House of PainT).

Ottawa is known as 'festival city' but what does that mean for local artists that want to play the big stage(s)? The truth is that the artist selection process differs from festival to festival and by festival type. Some festivals accept applications, some rely on partnerships with promoters, while others take a more tightly curated approach. This session will explore the approaches taken by three of Ottawa's most beloved local festivals.
