Juke Box Jury Event at Canadian Music Week 2016

We will be at Canadian Music Week on May 6th sponsoring the Juke Box Jury Conference, a role-play that allows Indie Musicians to see what happens when they send music for airplay consideration to radio & TV.

Learn directly from the best promotion execs, Program Directors, and Music Directors the "Do's & Don'ts", and how they consider your music for their playlists.

We'll be also giving a free music release through the #Ideserveairplay contest. You can’t miss it!!!
