Backstage Pass – Export Development Program


Interested in delving into the world of export? Alberta Music and Enki Music are partnering on an Export Development Program for markets in the United Kingdom and Europe. Applications are now open.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet individually with Enki Music to discuss strategy and market context for the UK and Mainland Europe. Mentorship meetings will occur virtually to curate connections for future export showcases or international tours artists may participate in. Following the mentorship meetings, Enki will work with the artists on a campaign planner and provide a tool kit of resources to support each specific artist’s campaign. Artists at all levels are encouraged to apply. Artists applying for the program should have plans/goals for export showcasing or touring in the United Kingdom and Europe Mainland during 2023 or 2024.


To be considered for this opportunity, you must:

  • Have a current or upcoming release (demo / EP / full-length) within 2021-2024
  • Be export-ready (able to capitalize on opportunities in Canada and internationally)
  • Be an Alberta Music member and current resident of Alberta

This program is supported by FACTOR and the Government of Alberta.
