A new era unfolds: Global Toronto Music Festival

Produced by Small World Music (SWM), the Global Toronto Music Festival (GTMF) marks the exciting fusion of the Small World Music Festival (SWMF) and the Global Toronto Conference and Showcases (GT). GTMF will be a premier destination of music and culture for music professionals, families, and audiences of all ages. From September 28th to October 1st, 2024, GTMF will transform venues across Toronto into interactive hubs featuring curated live musical performances, industry talks and networking events.

For over 25 years, the Small World Music Festival has been an anticipated musical tradition in Toronto. A rich legacy of free, family-friendly outdoor concerts have brought music explorers together to celebrate a diversity of sounds embodying the city’s many cultural communities.

This time, the festival builds on this history by incorporating Global Toronto’s mission of championing equity-deserving artists into its unforgettable live productions – all under the Global Toronto Music Festival banner.

GTMF will unveil 20 jury-selected musicians across a broad spectrum of genres and cultures. This artist lineup will headline the 4-day affair through a mix of free and ticketed shows available to the public.

GTMF transcends live concerts; it fosters a collaborative space to reimagine the music industry. Here, international delegates and their eclectic mix of perspectives come together to exchange ideas and tackle issues challenging the future of music. In line with Global Toronto’s core values of Sustainability, Equity and Accessibility, GTMF acts as a bridge between Canada and the world connecting underrepresented artists to curious audiences and industry professionals. GTMF is a gathering place of meaningful connections, thought-provoking discussions and musical discovery.

Stay tuned and follow us for updates on the full lineup, exciting announcements, and a chance to be part of this extraordinary musical adventure!
