We’re Behind The People, Behind Live Music

Exactly 2 years ago to the day, Music Canada Live set up shop. Founded in 2014 as a champion for the collective mission of the live music industry, Music Canada Live has worked to be the expert resource for our members, including concert promoters, festivals, presenters, venues, agents, ticketing companies, industry associations and suppliers.

With over 100 members and growing, a strong advocacy agenda and the support of the sector, MCL continues to positively impact policy – creating the conditions for concerts to thrive, from coast to coast to coast.” – Erin Benjamin, Executive Director of Music Canada Live
