Nova Scotia Music Week Returns with Century Egg, Hillsburn, Kim Harris
Nova Scotia Music Week (NSMW) is officially making its return to Truro this November 4 to 7. After being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the annual event showcasing emerging Nova Scotian artists — hosted by Music Nova Scotia — is all the more thrilled to be presenting a COVID-safe festival with something for everyone.

This year's lineup of local talent includes performances from Century Egg, Hillsburn, Kim Harris, the Town Heroes, Dan Doiron Band, Arsoniste, as well as Exclaim! New Faves alumni LXVNDR and Like a Motorcycle, among many others.

NSMW is putting safety first and adhering to the province's Phase 5 reopening plans. A full COVID-19 safety plan for the festival will be available in the coming weeks.

Early bird ticket pricing for both festival passes and delegate wristbands — which also include access to a yet-to-be-announced schedule of conference presentations — will be in effect until September 21. Tickets are available here.

Check out the full NSMW first wave artist announcement lineup below and see the festival website for further details.
