    What is the Western Canadian Music Alliance?
    BreakOut West, the Western Canadian Music Awards, and the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards are the primary events hosted by the Western Canadian Music Alliance – an organization created by the Music Industry Associations (MIA’s) of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, The Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory – to promote and celebrate western Canadian music.

    Each year the event is held in a different western Canadian region on a rotational basis. This, our 15th Anniversary, will be held in Edmonton, AB from September 13 – 17, 2017. This four-day event is comprised of a 4-day music conference, a 3-night multi-genre music festival, the Western Canadian Music Industry Awards Brunch and the Western Canadian Music Awards Reception.
