The basics

Get yo ass to Toronto, pronto, Tonto.

The festival

Oooooooh Canada! America's older, more sensible, yet still fun sibling brings you a shed load of entertainment. With venues including the Bovine sex club, Cherry Cola's Rock n Roll Cabaret and the pasta-esque Rivoli, what more reason do you need to go? Well, if you do need one, there's shed loads to do, and Toronto is lovely as well. CMW showcases over 1,000 bands at 60 live music venues across the city. 

Our tip

Due to its size and breadth, CMW includes a conference with celebrity interviews and figures from the advertising, gaming, film and TV industries, so make sure to have at least one detour from the musical side of things.
