Music Vice is pleased to announce a partnership with Indie Week music festival in Toronto. We will be teaming up as a festival sponsor to provide comprehensive coverage of all the action from Indie Week 2010.

Now in it’s seventh year, Indie Week 2010 will be the biggest yet with 150 bands set to participate – up 50% from the 100 that played last year. This year’s festival will have a bigger international feel with a larger contingent of participating acts from around the world. There’s going to be Tokyo and Australian showcases, building on the festival’s presence in Canada and Ireland, with it’s annual festivals in both countries.

Already established as Toronto’s “third” music festival, Indie Week offers something different to NXNE and Canadian Music Week. It’s more just about the music and less about the industry sideshow: there will be no hour-long industry conferences at Indie Week on the benefits of using Twitter. I had a blast at Indie Week 2009 and saw some great bands – 2010 promises to be even better, and our Toronto team will be rallying to provide extensive coverage of all the action, with reviews, photos and artist interviews.

Toronto has become Music Vice’s permanent base since 2009 – and what started in the UK over eight years ago as a one-man music zine (by yours truly) has now grown to provide music coverage from across the globe, with a team of contributing writers in Australia, the UK and Canada. Our coverage and audience continues to grow but we’re still a 100% independent publication and remain rooted in the zine ethos. We’re proud to do whatever we can to help showcase new music everywhere and we’re pleased to be involved with a great independent festival here on our doorstep in Toronto with Indie Week.

This year’s Indie Week takes place in venues throughout downtown Toronto from October 13th-17th. Tickets can be purchased at

Long live indie!
