It’s turning into a busy year for Canadian Blast. Having already showcased at Camden Crawl and presented a handful of shows in London and Berlin, they will once again head down to Brighton for The Great Escape this year. As in previous years, they will be hosting a showcase of some of the finest Canadian talent at the festival. This year they takeover Upstairs at The Komedia during the day with a show featuring Braids, Young Empires, Hey Rosetta, Woodhands and Said The Whale.
If you are heading down to the Great Escape (and even if you aren’t), Canadian Blast have put together a Soundcloud playlist for your listening pleasure to introduce you to some of the Canadian artists showcasing at the festival (even those not playing their showcase)
