Today the East Coast Music Association announced the decision to cancel the 2020 East Coast Music Awards. The event was slated to take place April 29-May 3, 2020 in St. John’s, NL.
After carefully considering the guidance and recommendations from Eastern Health, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, the City of St. John’s, and several other key event partners, we have made the collective decision to cancel the 2020 East Coast Music Awards: Festival & Conference presented by TD.
The full statement can be read on the ECMA website.
Canadian Beats was looking forward to attending the showcases, conference and, of course, award ceremonies where we are nominated for Media Outlet of the Year. However, we are in full support of the difficult decision they had to make. We also look forward to honouring the award winners and music industry with them when the time is appropriate.
I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
