According to the recent report released by the East Coast Music Association (ECMA), the dates for the virtual editions for the year 2021 have been altered because of the pandemic. The rescheduled dates will be from 9th June to 13th, 2021, and will be held online through the East Coast Music Awards platform.
The streaming of the four days’ awards will happen via the ECMA’s Youtube and Facebook channels. This is the best way to accommodate both national and global fans.
Our Music Means Business, which is the ECMA virtual industry conference session has also been rescheduled and will take place from 9th to 13th June. The mentorship and learning opportunities programs will be the selected few and will be running within the period.
Fortunately, the participants who have been enrolled for the 2021 conference will not have to register afresh for the new dates. There are efforts from Canadian and global delegates to have the Export Buyers Programs pushed to further date.
East Coast Music Association has apologized for the inconveniences and looks forward to accommodating everyone in honoring and appreciating the music industry. It has also thanked all artists, partners, staff, and industry professionals for their continued work and effort to host the event virtually.
