Celebrating its 20th year, Oshawa Music Week (formerly Reel Music Festival) brings six days of entertaining and educational events, celebrating the Durham Region’s rich music culture. The festival strives to develop, grow, support, and unite the music community within the city of Oshawa and throughout the Durham Region. Each event under the scope of Oshawa Music Week is tailored for the diverse members of Durham’s cultural landscape, ranging from entertainment for music lovers to education for aspiring and established music professionals.
Taking place in downtown Oshawa and at Durham College's Oshawa campus, Oshawa Music Week will host concerts showcasing Durham Region’s musical talent, a music summit, a songwriting competition, a lip-sync battle and an award show recognizing contributors to the local music industry with winners chosen by the community.
Oshawa Music Week has been host to many notable guest speakers, emerging musical talent, and budding music business managers. Last year, the festival was honoured to feature performances by Haviah Mighty, Rural Alberta Advantage, Kelsi Mayne, Mappe Of, Rooks McCoy, The Beresfords, DJ NDN, Robyn Ottolini and MT Clips among many others.
