Sunrise Records Celebrates Official GTA Grand Opening Next Weekend and Announces Big Local Artist Contest
Celebrations will include giveaways, snacks, and discounts + local artists could win nationwide distribution
Sunrise Records has officially opened 80 stores across the country and is holding Grand Opening celebrations on Saturday, September 30th and Sunday, October 1st inclusive. GTA locations are Square One Shopping Centre, Sherway Gardens, Cloverdale Mall, Bramalea City Centre, Vaughan Mills, Fairview Mall, Upper Canada Mall, and Pickering Town Centre. Celebrations will include snacks, giveaways (from limited-edition merch to signed vinyl, and more), and special discounts for every customer.
In conjunction with the official Grand Opening, Sunrise Records has announced its first Local Artist Contest. This contest gives the opportunity for emerging artists to have their music distributed across the country in an exciting two-tiered contest. Hopeful bands/artists will enter through an online form and then enter a voting period. From the top 10 most-voted artists, a panel of Sunrise judges will determine a winner for a Grand Prize and a Runner-up Prize. The Grand Prize includes the winning band/artist’s music pressed on 500 LPs and 500 CDs with nationwide distribution, a custom plaque, promotion via Sunrise channels, and more. The Runner-up Prize includes the winning band/artist’s music on 500 CDs with regional distribution, plus social media support.
Sunrise Records is committed to supporting local bands, artists, and venues, across the GTA. In addition to partnerships with venues in support of local shows, Sunrise offers consignment deals on any retail-ready CDs, vinyl, or cassettes by local artists who do not have current label distribution.
