Finally the wait is over!
Megaphono is an Ottawa music organization which focuses on spreading the word about music from Ottawa, Gatineau and Eastern Ontario area and helping musicians export their music and create sustainable careers.
They have announced their first annual music showcase festival which is taking place on February 3 – 5.
So mark it down on your calendar!
Here is what to expect:
[UPDATE] Megaphono Launch Lunch – Tuesday, February 3 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm @ Ottawa City Hall Council Chambers (FREE)
Includes a 2″ tape cutting ceremony.
Andrew Vincent and Kwende Kefentse will kickoff the festival with the findings from the recent Ontario Music Fund supported study called Connecting Ottawa Music.
Panel: The Spirit of Radio at 2pm – 3:30pm taking place in Saw Gallery.
Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 Morning (No way!) and Erin Flynn of CHUO 89.1 FM (YAY!) will be giving tips on how to get their attention and get your music played on the radio.
Do CD mailouts still make sense (Yes! In my opinion 😛 ) or has everyone gone digital (That’s the reality 😛 ). How does the music selection get processed at campus/community radio and how about the CBC?
