The Hogtown Hang

One-day. One incredible downtown location.  Several Independent Musicians.  And a few industry people.  That’s our recipe for the Hogtown Hang.  The launching pad for independent music in Toronto.

Invited artist/bands are chosen by a panel on the basis of three factors: talentsocial media savvy, and hustle. Also invited to join us for The Hang is a gaggle of awesome music business mentors to view performances, answer questions, and offer guidance on best career practices. Please note that attendance is by invitation only.

Where do we hang?

WANTED! Sound + Picture, located in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District, occupies 15,000 square feet in a century-old loft-style building housing 12 digital audio HD Recording/Mixing/Editing studios; video online Avid Nitris & Final Cut HD suites; Flame/Smoke services plus Screening & Meeting Rooms.

For The Hang, we provide 2 studios with engineers for recording “off the floor” performances, and we aim for at least one professionally recorded and filmed performance from the booth for each artist/band.
