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!
