Specimen: An individual used as an example of its species or type; an example of something regarded as typical of its class or group.

To give a taste of the entire “species”, in one day only, that is the goal of this Canadian flavored operation!

Brought under the aegis of the FME, the Fondation Musicaction and FACTOR, in collaboration with the Festival d’été de Québec and Le Printemps de Bourges, SPÉCIMENS CANADIENS is an inclusive initiative inviting European music industry professionals to discover the Canadian music trends on stage, as well as backstage.

It is a unique chance to discover artists of different musical trends in Canada’s two official languages. It is also an opportunity to meet dynamic Canadian delegates and create business relations and, let’s not forget, to share convivial moments gathered around typical Canadian dishes.

1 day (April 26) – 1 site (La Prairie) – 3 events

  • The awakening : from 11:00 AM, discover Avec pas d’casque and Mappe of while enjoying a delectable brunch with Canadian and European delegates.
  • The eclosion : starting at 3: 30 PM, attend Milk & Bone and La Bronze showcases and continue your discussions during a gourmet cocktail.
  • The take off : From midnight, all delegates are invited to get down on the dancefloor to the sound of a wild DJ set.

Besides the artists showcases, other Canadian artists will also be performing during Le Printemps de Bourges like Matt Holubowski on April 27, at 5 pm at the Auditorium and Kroy as part of Les Inouïs in Pop, Electro and Hip-Hop category on April 26, from 12:30 pm, at the 22.
Save the date!

This project has been made possible by the Government of Canada.
