To help fans gain access to some of the larger shows, CMW is introducing a concert lottery. This will allow fans to RSVP for select shows when the lotteries are announced daily through social media, with those who are quick on the draw getting guaranteed spots on the list. Lottery contenders must be wristband holders, and they will guarantee a place for them plus a friend, so long as both have wristbands.
The lottery shows are: City and Colour, Neko Case, the 1975, Owen Pallett, Mastodon and the Canadian Radio Music Awards
Tickets and wristbands can be purchased at CMW's website, where you can also see the festival's full lineup.
