The Canadian Live Music Association says "Get Ready to Make Some Noise"

#ForTheLoveOfLIVE is an awareness campaign to bring attention to the damage COVID-19 shutdowns have caused Canada’s live music industry – the artists, festivals, venues, promoters, clubs, concert halls, arenas, talent agencies, unions and many others working in the supply chain that connect Canadians with extraordinary live music experiences.
