ABOUT INDIE WEEK: ?Indie Week is an independent music festival founded in Toronto in 2003. The festival expanded to international waters in 2007, with Indie Week Europe, now taking place with Manchester, UK as its new host city. Indie Week Canada is a one of a kind experience. Emerging artists perform in front of the music industry elite for a chance to win the Best of the Fest, and the grand prize of a trip to Manchester to headline Indie Week Europe 2016. Indie Week Canada also hosts a conference called Indie101 (featuring panels in social media, tech, music and more, plus industry mixers, after show parties and demo listening sessions) and a music themed film festival called Reel Indie Film Fest (RiFF).
