This May (1st-10th) Torontonians get another dose of Canadian Music Week. The 2015 version of CMW is bigger and better than previous years with one of the most solid lineups we've seen. Big name acts like Faith No More, The Jesus And The Mary Chain, Death Cab For Cutie, Kiesza and Lights create the foundation for the festival, and smaller (yet badass) names like Metz, The Orwells, Dead Tired, Mick Jenkins, Fat White Family, Single Mothers, Strung Out and Broncho help to draw in the diverse audience.
There's too many bands to name, but we picked some of our favourite artists playing this years CMW and curated a playlist to get us hyped for May. If you have done so already, you can buy your wristband or the festival here: http://cmw.net/music/wristbands.
