10 must-see acts to catch during 2018 ECMAs

The 2018 ECMAs (East Coast Music Awards: Festival & Conference) starts today (May 2, 2018) in Halifax, NS. The week will be filled with informative sessions for Atlantic Canadian artists and industry professionals, but also filled with an immense amount of great East Coast music. We wanted to take a few moments to give you some suggestions for bands and artists that you should make time to check out during the week! Mind you, these are just a few of the amazing musicians in Halifax this week, and you should check out all you can at each showcase, and fill up your days with all the East Coast music you can!
