rez | Events | Friday, August 18th, 2017


The Northern Power Summit returns tomorrow at The Drake Hotel. Description says it all. Shouts to the homie D.O.!

On Saturday, August 19, the Drake Hotel in Toronto, Canada will be the site of the second annual “Northern Power Summit”, a one-day Urban Music conference dedicated to providing education and tools, as well as access to individuals to help Canadian artists and industry professionals develop their careers internationally.

Presented by Northstarr Entertainment and Letting Artists Make Art (LAMA), the follow-up to the inaugural 2016 event will feature panels and “ted”-style talks from a variety of Canadian and international industry professionals.

“Last year’s event had over 100 attendees ranging from emerging and established artists to current tastemakers and long-time industry professionals”, says Duane “D.O.” Gibson, Founder and President of Northstarr Entertainment. “As with many first-time events, we weren’t sure what to expect, but when we asked people for feedback afterwards, the overwhelming response was that people were very grateful to have an event like ours because of a lack of educational events in the Urban industry. We’re really excited to present another valuable day of programming for our attendees this year.”

Northern Power Summit also includes a showcase component and dedicated networking time in addition to the educational elements, and this year’s edition will feature an evening social with entertainment on the historic Drake Hotel stage.

Partnering with leading international conference New Skool Rules, attending artists will have a chance to audition for a chance to perform at New Skool Rules in Rotterdam, Netherlands in May 2018.

Conference programming will run from noon until 6 p.m., with an evening event to
