The Association of Artists for a Better World presents the 3rd Annual Concert for Peace, featuring a full-day of our finest blues and roots musicians. Blues for Peace will be staged from a large outdoor Toronto City-Hall venue, renowned for large audiences and world class entertainment. The event, to be held on June 25, 2005, will be well promoted to offer wide exposure and publicity to our artists and bands. There are four performance slots reserved for Sonicbids artists.

This is our first collaboration with an international peace organization. Although well established in other parts of the world, we are thrilled to launch the first Blues for Peace event in Canada! Blues for Peace is an independent, UNESCO recognized, non-political organization established in Israel to honor the roots of blues music and promote peace and the understanding that ALL peoples have had their share of the blues. Now it has come to Canada.

The Blues for Peace Festival in Toronto is a FREE family concert of Blues and Roots Music with underlying themes of peace. We can use our voice to change the world, there is magic in our words. The music is the message!

Genres accepted include electric or acoustic - Blues, Roots, Rock, World, Ethnic, Native and more.
We will consider solo artists, duets, and bands.

Selected artists will be compensated for their performances.
