Music City - The Industry

Within the last few decades alone, we have witnessed the successes of organizations and individuals starting their roots within Toronto and focusing on the cultural wealth and identity that stems from the music that is created here. From Much Music and the Opera House to Drake and Kiezsa, we have witnessed how Toronto-focused music provides us with a unifying identity, a sense of pride in our own and a celebration in our music economy. Toronto is recognized as a prominent leader in the international music scene and now is our time to celebrate it!

Presented by Next Generation Arts in partnership with Myseum of Toronto, Phase One Studios and G5 Canadian Urban, Music City featured Toronto's rising stars, movers and shakers and legends for a panel discussion, concert and networking event. Special guests included Global News' Marianne Dimain, multiplatinum Grammy-Nominated producer Megaman, Canadian beatbox competitor KRNFX, veteran Hip-Hop emcee Dan-e-o and much more.
