GET READY WINNIPEG!
June 13th, Landmark Events will be hosting it's second showcase festival in your town
As you may be aware, many of your local talented artists and bands will be participating in Landmark Events showcase festival at this community oriented theatre.
Not only does this festival offer artists the chance to win music grants, studio time and more, LME festival is offering you an opportunity too!
The stage isn’t the only platform which gives exposure, attending this event gives you the chance to experience and hear something new.
Sounds like a cliché? But in a culture where most radio stations are internationally popular artists, many of us find it hard to discover that unknown band or artist. The ones that we can enjoy all to ourselves; before the rest of our friends, family and colleagues discovers them too. Sometimes, this can happen due to lack of resources or maybe we just don’t know where to look.
Well for all you music lovers, here’s a hint: on June 13th, at the Bandwidth theatre in Winnipeg, Landmark Events will be hosting another one of their popular festival, where you get the chance to discover some new local talents...
Before your friends, family and colleagues do.

We held our semi-final round of the Montreal showcase on a beautiful Sunday in late June. For those who missed out, Le National is an intimate venue where the sound fills the room.
