Curatorial Statement

The SoundClash Music Award is Harbourfront Centre's annual live music competition for cutting-edge, forward-thinking artists from all genres, across the GTA. It's an important part of our commitment to showcase the wealth of talent bubbling beneath the GTA's surface. The SoundClash Music Award highlights the work of artists who are pushing boundaries, crossing genres and exploring all that is possible through live music.

The SoundClash Music Award is an extension of Harbourfront Centre's mission and role as an incubator of local up-and-coming talent and an effort to showcase the most innovative and groundbreaking music that the city has to offer. We aim to provide a platform for artists who are not represented in the wider music scene, and shine a light on creators employing alternative perspectives on the possibilities for their music. By offering prizes, we hope to also help to fund further creation, and to help inspire the next generation of GTA artistry.
