New Music Ottawa Music Festival Announcement: CRANIUM Festival
The Capital Region Association for Nurturing the Industry of Urban Music (CRANIUM) is pleased to announce the first CRANIUM Festival, taking place from November 14 through 16, 2019.
CRANIUM Festival will showcase the best in local, national and international urban music. Presented in indoor venues with a focus on live music performances CRANIUM Festival will also feature a series of professional development workshops, panel discussions and keynote talks.
While there are several music festivals in Ottawa and many of them program urban music, none of these festivals are rooted in the urban music community. CRANIUM Festival was developed by the founders of CRANIUM to be a catalyst for a new era of Urban Music in Ottawa.
Leveraging the festival to bring in successful artists and industry professionals and cross collaborate with the Ottawa music scene was done by design. Ottawa while full of talent, is not recognized as a city with an urban music scene. CRANIUM is but one of the grassroots efforts that is poised to change all of that!
