MJF SPOTLIGHT FOCUSES ON THREE MAIN CAMPAIGNS:

  1. MJF SPOTLIGHT ARTIST OF THE MONTH 
    Each month, an artist is highlighted on the Festival channels with the release of a live performance and original content, intended for social media and streaming platforms.
  2. MJF SPOTLIGHT PLAYLIST 
    Each month, our booking team will select 20 tracks reflecting the latest musical trends and their new discoveries.
  3. MJF SPOTLIGHT 20 ARTISTS TO WATCH IN 2022
    At the beginning of each year, the Festival will unveil its list of 20 emerging artists to be followed very, very closely. Many artists on this list will be invited to participate in MJF Spotlight sessions and events throughout the year and during the Festival.
