CMW Review: CHUM Fan Fest14 May 2015 / by Alexia Kapralos (author)
Canadian Music Week (CMW) 2015 brought a mix of up-and-coming musicians as well as Canadian chart toppers to Toronto. CHUM Fan Fest, hosted by Toronto radio station 104.5 CHUM FM, was a mega-concert that took place on May 8, 2015 at the Sheraton Hotel's grand ballroom. Big-name acts playing this at this CMW show were: Francesco Yates, Shawn Hook, Trevor Guthrie, Colbie Caillat, Lights, Kiesza, and Magic!.
Opening acts Yates, Hook, and Guthrie played shorter sets, while Callait, Lights, Kiesza, and Magic played longer sets, lasting about half-an-hour. The crowd was diverse; an even mix of men and women of varied ages from teens to seniors. Regardless of demographic, everyone was cheering and singing along to the music, and appearing to have a fun time.
