Composed of an awards show, festival, conference and the Rising Star Search, the events will take place at the Dofasco Centre for the Arts and various music venues across the city.
Submissions for festival performers and award nominees are now open and available here. The awards will see a new category in 2016, with Group of the Year being added to the list of other honours.

The Hamilton Music Awards evolved from Hamilton Music Scene, which began in 1995 as an unofficial pre-Juno Awards music festival.
