With nearly a month to go before the next edition, organizers of the East Coast Music Awards have already chosen the site of next year's celebrations.
The East Coast Music Association said Monday afternoon the 2010 festivities will return to Cape Breton for a fourth time — with Sydney, N.S., named host city.
Slated for March 4-7, 2010, the music festival and conference is typically Atlantic Canada's biggest musical event and annually showcases the region's best music.
The festival includes concerts throughout the host city, public and industry-only events, and the rollicking awards gala.
This year the 21st annual East Coast Music Awards and Conference will descend on Corner Brook, N.L., from Feb. 26 through March 1.
