Now from out of the ashes emerges a NEW festival with a NEW name but with
the same good looks and talent for pestering good bands to visit their
beautiful city on the east coast.

Halifax is launching a new music festival called HALIFAX ON MUSIC from September

MacKenzie (Talent Director) whose involvment and dedication have helped
propel the local Halifax scene to international recognition for one of the 
hottest sopts for new music today. For three fun-filled days Halifax will
be scaring the neighbours with 35 bands from all over North America performing
in venues all over town. Here's a list of some of those bands scheduled to

Change of Heart, Chixdiggitt [sic], Cool Blue Halo, Duotang, Giant Sand,
The Inbreds, jale, Local Rabbits, Mavis Piggott, Madhat, Plumtree, Pushkings,
Rebecca West, Scud Mountain Boys, Sianspheric, Superfriendz [sic], Thrush
Hermit, Transistor, Tristan Psionic, ... and many more!!

Additionally, Halifax on Music will be featuring "Saturday's Rock 'n Roll
Carnival" on Sept. 14 which will offer independent record labels, distributors,
and music related entrepreneurs a chance to exchange ideas, answer queries
and sell merchandaise.

But wait, there's more! In conjunction with Saturday's Carnival members of
the media can get involved through Halifax on Media, the sister conference
