MusicOntario is joining forces with The Bout @ The Hideout in 2019 to present a series of panels designed to equip emerging bands and artists with some of the tools they will need to build their careers in the music business.
The Bout is an annual competition created in 2018 by Toronto live music venue The Hideout to bring together talented local musicians, generate support and awareness for live music in Toronto, and, most importantly, provide a welcoming atmosphere for artists to showcase their music. After a stellar launch year, The Bout team have doubled the prize money to $20,000 in cash prizes, which will be paid out to the winners, with $12,000 going to 1st place.
