September 15-17 will see global policymakers, music industry professionals, academics, and city leaders meet in Calgary and Edmonton, as well as virtually, for the 10th edition of Music Cities Convention, the largest and most extensive global gathering on the topic of music cities.
Scaling Up Music Cities: Cultivating the Future of Alberta will be the theme of the 2021 edition of the annual conference, which is being hosted in Canada for the first time ever. Hosted alongside West Anthem, National Music Centre and Alberta Music, the three-day event follows the publication of the West Anthem Music Ecosystem Study in October 2020, and will provide a stage to further the conversation around music’s pivotal role in cities, something the host organizations have been advocating for years.
The full speaker lineup will be announced soon. Tickets and more information on the 10th global Music Cities Convention are available on the event’s official website musiccitiesevents.com/alberta-mcc-2021.
