Welcome To Hamilton City of Music Playlists

Video playlists are a hugely popular way of enjoying collections of streaming music videos. Our playlists are compiled and updated by our Hamilton City of Music YouTube channel editor on a regular basis. Of course, we missed many, many good videos in this version of our playlists! If you would like to have your YouTube content considered for one of our playlists, reach out to playlists@cityofmusic.ca.

Playlist rules and guidelines:

  1. Artists and musicians on our playlists are asked to create directory listings on the site to create a lasting connection with our website, expand their internet footprint, and to help promote themselves. Directory listings are free.
  2. We only feature artists that are connected with the greater Hamilton area, either because they are from here, were once from here and are proud of it, or are visiting here on tour and are freaking amazing. We figure that you know who you are.
  3. If you like our playlists, click through to the YouTube page and subscribe. Thank-you.
  4. Think of ways you can use our playlists to make your life better.
