KELOWNA – The four-day music festival connecting undiscovered talent with music producers that’s coming to Kelowna this fall just released a video promoting the city.

BreakOut West is held in a different Canadian city each year, and last year organizers announced Kelowna had been chosen for 2018.

The Oct. 10 to Oct. 15 event will include a three-night music festival of new talent from Western Canada, a four-day career development conference and international industry program, awards honouring the best of Western Canada’s artists and industry representatives, according to a media release.

This week the event promoted Kelowna in a short, stunning music video uploaded to social media.

“We couldn't be more excited to head to Kelowna, B.C. this October. Not only is our next host city epically located lakefront in wine country but is also filled with some of the most enthusiastic music creators and supporters we've ever met,” the post to Facebook says. “In case you need a final nudge... here's a Kelowna you've probably never seen before. We can't wait to spend more time there.”

The festival was last in Kelowna in 2010.

Host committee chair Karma Lacoff calls it a chance to show what Kelowna has to offer.

"We know the event will drive economic impact through tourism and music industry development as well as being a super fun time for all that attend, local and visitors,” she says in the release.

Submissions for BreakOut West Festival and Western Canadian Music Awards will open in January 2018 at the BreakOut West website
