Brantford looking for local musicians for Trail Mix 2024

Arts and EntertainmentBrantford looking for local musicians for Trail Mix 2024

The City of Brantford is now accepting applications from local Brantford musicians for Trail Mix 2024.

Musicians are invited to submit up to three original songs for consideration. Artists will be paid $50 per successful song selection, with the 2024 song selection being released on National Trails Day on June 1, 2024.

Trail Mix is a program that merges local music with Brantford’s trail system. Trail users can look for the signs posted on the kilometer markers along a 10km stretch of the trail between Hardy Road and River Road/Dike Trail intersection, located behind notable tourism destinations in Brantford including: Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant, Waterworks Park, Earl Haig Family Fun Park and Brant’s Crossing.

There are a total of ten playlists and ten unique QR codes along the trail. Each playlist has 3 songs and is approximately 10-12 minutes long, which allows the trail user to continue discovering local music during the duration of their hike. You can learn more about Trail Mix at: discoverbrantford.ca/TrailMix

Brantford’s beautiful trail system and abundance of local talent was a natural fit for Trail Mix, a program that was originally piloted by the City of Waterloo and has since been adopted by numerous communities throughout Ontario. A special thanks once again goes out to City of Waterloo staff who graciously helped us recreate this fun experience in Brantford in 2022. Now in its third year, Trail Mix is made possible with funding from Hamilton Halton Brant Regional Tourism Association.

“We’re really excited to launch the third year of Trail Mix in Brantford,” said Adrienne Briggs, Arts and Culture Coordinator for the City of Brantford. “It’s a great, paid opportunity for local artists to gain exposure and showcase their original songs. It also adds a cool element for our trail users, who get to listen and enjoy these playlists for free.”

Those interested in being included in Trail Mix 2024 can learn more and submit an application online at: https://forms.discoverbrantford.ca/Call-for-Artists-Trail-Mix-2024. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2024 at 4:30 p.m. Any questions about the Call for Artists may be directed to culture@brantford.ca.
