Aside from enjoying the live shows, this is also the first year that AMBY owner Alicia will be on a panel. It’s called ‘Hot Pod’ My Podcast is Bigger Than Your BLOG and My Playlist Rocks Your Internet! and will take place on May 5th at 11:40AM at Osgoode Ballroom East at The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. It’s an absolute honour to be part of a CMW panel and only makes us even more eager to start covering its shows and artists. Dive into the shows we can’t wait to attend;
Savoir Adore, May 5th
One of our favourite bands are performing at CMW 2016, that band being Savoir Adore.

Eagles of Death Metal & The Beaches, May 7th
Having seen EODM and The Beaches multiple times before, we ensure you that both bands put on one hell of a rock show. This stellar line-up takes place Saturday the 7th at The Opera House. Tickets are available here.
That’s just the beginning, folks, as there are so many other bands we’re counting down the days to see!
