Canadian Music Week shares a sneak peek of 2018 line-up

Canadian Music Week (CMW) has announced a sneak peek at the 36th edition of Canada’s largest and longest-running new music festival. This year’s instalment will take place between May 7-13 at over thirty official CMW venues across downtown Toronto.

We have been given an early look at the line-up and it includes some stellar acts, including Vancouver Punk Legends, Slow, Chicago rapper CupcakKe, This Will Destroy You, Juno nominated Iskwe, Annie Hart, Lydia Lunch, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Spanish indie-rock band, Hinds. These acts join the previously announced artists, Lindi Ortega, and Keys ‘n’ Krates. See a list of confirmed acts below.

In addition, Toronto music fans can look forward to a free show at Yonge-Dundas Square featuring Canadian indie-rock royalty Sloan on Saturday, May 12. The band will be touring in support of their upcoming 12th album release.

“We are really excited to once again program an eclectic mix of artists as part of this year’s CMW. As Toronto’s longest running multi-venue discovery festival, we look forward to utilizing Yonge-Dundas Square, a central outdoor hub, for one of Canada’s most beloved acts,” – Dave Henry, Festival Manager
