Canadian Country Summer Music Festivals

Music festival season is finally upon us, signalling a busy time for festival organizers, promoters and artists. Of course, there's no better feeling for an artist than to perform in front of a large crowd of committed fans, or potential new fans. And as organizers, there's certainly a feeling of accomplishment in having a crowd at capacity, revelling to their favourite artists and discovering new up-and-coming talent. As our genre, and our audience, continues to evolve, the importance of quality, well-executed music festivals will certainly prevail. We tip our hats to our festival partners, who, throughout the summer, will engage country music listeners, and profile our vast Canadian country music talent. To our Member artists, enjoy the unique experience of performing at a Canadian country music festival - seize the opportunity. And to the promoters, booking agents and everyone working behind the scenes, you are the link that brings this puzzle together. Thank you for getting boots on the ground.

Engaging audiences, and creating awareness for events is no easy feat. The CCMA thanks our festival partners for promoting the CCMA Awards Broadcast via video reels during their live events this summer. If you have a country festival affiliation not listed below, and want to develop a partnership with the CCMA, please be in touch with Sonya Koson at  or 416-947-1331 x210.

We hope you're able to make it out to one of the great Canadian country music festivals below this summer!
