It's the dead of winter in Toronto which is all the more reason to look forward to festival season. Luckily, lineups are starting to leak out slowly including this just-revealed sneak peek at what's to come during Canadian Music Week 2018.

Previously announced artists Lindi Ortega and Keys’n’ Krates are joined by an eclectic mix of artists including Chicago rapper CupcakKe, This Will Destroy You performing “S/T” in its entirety, Juno nominated Iskwe, New York no wave noise artist Lydia Lunch, psych rock outfit The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Spanish indie-rock band Hinds, among others. 

“We are really excited to once again program an eclectic mix of artists as part of this year’s CMW festival," says Dave Henry, festival manager for CMW. "As Toronto’s longest running multi-venue discovery festival, we look forward to utilizing Yonge-Dundas Square, a central outdoor hub, for one of Canada’s most beloved acts."
