From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.

Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.

As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.

Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’ and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.

Afterwards, security escorted the trap star out of the premises.

New device from Pioneer set to better distribute royalties to artists

This post was originally published on this site

SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada, have teamed with Pioneer to better track what is being played in clubs and venues across the country and, in turn, better distribute royalties to the proper artists.

Dubbed KUVO, the device plugs directly into the performer’s mixing board and collects the metadata from the tracks that are being played. In doing so, KUBO can then send the information directly to SOCAN who will then distribute royalties to the proper artists. This is a vast improvement over DJs providing their own playlists, as many don’t plan their sets out in advance and are then liable to forget a track or be unable to provide a list at all.

SOCAN is set to begin the roll out the KUVO devices to clubs, venues, and festivals starting in Toronto — entirely for free.

Wayhome Music Festival offers Fyre Festival ticket-holders free tickets

This post was originally published on this site

A rare positive has arisen from  the never-ending saga of the disastrous Fyre Festival as the Canadian-based Wayhome Music Festival has decided to lend a helping-hand to the distraught, trust-fund occupying attendees who suffered through 48 hours of rationed food portions while stranded on the Bahamian island until outgoing flights resumed.

Embracing the stereotypical Canadian way of life, the Wayhome committee announced their incredible gesture of kindness by stating that “all 2017 Fyre Festival ticket holders can redeem their ticket for a 2017 WayHome General Admission Ticket by sending a copy of their unique confirmed Fyre Festival ticket to the following address;”

Featuring major artists like Flume, Justice, Illenium, Louis the Child, Marshmello, and Porter Robinson, Wayhome welcomes their doors from July 28-30 to all members of the dance music community, even if they happen to be Fyre festival refugees.


After the unsuspecting cancellation of Pemberton Music Festival, Wayhome has decided to extend their generosity to ticket-holders of the west-coast festival. Catching everyone by surprise after the uber late announcement of their 2017 lineup, the social downfall of the festival began when attendees caught word of the parent company’s bankruptcy, and statement regarding “no automatic refunds” for ticket holders.

Pemberton Music Festival unexpectedly announces cancellation with no refund

Pemberton Music Festival didn’t take long to establish itself as one of Canada’s biggest festivals. The British Columbian affair was known for its picturesque surrounding scenery and diverse, Coachella-esque lineup which featured a large roster of artists across the musical spectrum.

Despite its incredible look on paper, the event has had a notoriously tattered past, having to cancel two subsequent editions after its debut in 2008 and not returning until its three year run from 2014-2016. On May 18, Pemberton met its official demise. Not only will it not be taking place this July, but the festival has now filed bankruptcy, according to documents discovered by Global News.

Ticket holders were met with even worse news – no refunds will be given due to the event’s protection under bankruptcy law. If they do wish to see any of their funds returned, they’d have to file a proof of claim as a creditor through the courts. Even if they do so, generally approved proof of claims are paid out in installments over the period of bankruptcy.

Artists slated to headline this year included Major Lazer, Carnage, Zeds Dead, and more. Huka Entertainment, the primary promoters of the event, had the following statement:

“For the past four years, Huka Entertainment has worked to create a one-of-a-kind experience in the most beautiful place on earth. We are heartbroken to see the 2017 Pemberton Music Festival cancelled.

As a contract producer, Huka did not make the decision to cancel the festival. That decision was made by the Pemberton Music Festival, LP. We are extremely disappointed for our fans, artists and all of our partners who have supported the festival over the years.”
