The Iron Mic Festival & Conference (IMFC) is a new contest-based music event that integrates both online and live performances with an industry conference to showcase and empower emerging and established PEI hip hop and rap artists.

Any hip hop and rap artist residing on PEI is invited to submit their original music for a chance to perform, compete and win a $1000 cash prize  and become the Iron Mic Champion. Submissions are open until July 11.

Between July 13–27, visit, create a free fan profile and vote for who you want to see perform live. The twelve artists with the most votes will be invited to perform at the Iron Mic Festival on August 14. Participating Iron Mic Festival artists also receive free access to the Iron Mic Conference. The winner will be selected through three stages of elimination that include public online voting and professional judging.

The IMFC live event schedule includes the Live Contest Performances at Charlottetown Beer Garden, August 14 and both the Iron Mic Conference and the Iron Mic Festival Showcase Performances at the PEI Convention Centre, August 21.

The 2021 Iron Mic Festival & Conference is presented in partnership with Music PEI.
