Northern Power Summit (NPS) will deliver its 6th annual conference as an in-person, three-day event in Toronto between Thursday, November 24, and Saturday, November 26.

Sponsored by Believe Music, Northern Power Summit will kick off with a showcase night at Toronto’s TacoTaco featuring Jory, Aysanabee, Morgan Toney, and Keith Mullins. Conference programming will take place at the beloved Kensington Market venue Supermarket Bar & Variety. Key panelists and speakers include the founder of Barcelona’s Future Music Forum, Niall Doorley, award-winning artist and producer Keith Mullins, and R-Son of renowned American Bluegrass Hip-Hop group Gangstagrass.
Leading up to the conference weekend, the conference is also hosting a series of virtual speaking series via Instagram Live. The full schedule is available here.
With a year-over-year increase in attendance, with over 250 registered attendees in 2021, the conference brings together top-tier industry experts from around the world to share their expertise through a combination of panel discussions and TED-style talks, keeping content fresh and moving throughout.
“We are excited to return to an in-person event for 2022! We were fortunate that we were able to pivot to a virtual event last year and the great thing is that it allowed us to attract a global audience,” says NPS co-founder and Northstarr Entertainment President D.O. Gibson. “I think there is a hunger for emerging and established artists to return to live performances, and we want to give them the tools needed to get their music heard globally in 2023 and beyond!”
