MEGAPHONO 2018 Music Showcase Festival & Conference
February 8-10
Various venues, Ottawa & Gatineau

Artist submissions are now open. As with previous years, we'll be bringing tons of music industry delegates to Ottawa who are looking to work with emerging artists (check out last year's class here: Over the past three years, we've watched MEGAPHONO artists sign record, publishing and distribution deals, and confirm dozens of bookings for regional and international festivals.

We encourage artists of all genres, styles, career levels, and communities to apply. We strive to book artists on bills that make sense, and in venues (or unique spaces) that will suit their aesthetic. Our main focus continues to be artists from the Ottawa-Gatineau area, but a few select artists from outside of our region will also be welcomed to showcase.
