Canadian Blast is back for the 26th Edition of South By Southwest (SXSW)
in Austin, Texas (March 13-18, 2012). Canadian artists will be hard to
miss at this annual festival with our usual show-stopping contingent of
Canucks heading south in March. Once again we will be kicking things off
with the Canadian Blast Showcase & BBQ at Brush Square, a "must" on
anyone's list featuring some of Canada's hottest new artists; as well
as "by invitation only" showcases at Canada House and a Canada Stand on
the trade show floor with events scheduled during the week.
CIMA gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our partners and
sponsors: SiriusXM Canada, the Radio Starmaker Fund, The Society of
Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), Harvard

Canadian Blast at SXSW 2012 is put together with the efforts of many
individuals and companies comprising the Canadian Blast Team.
