Co-Presentations (CKUT Sponsorship):

CKUT is interested in presenting a wide spectrum of cultural and community events. We consider all sorts of musical projects especially those from local performers, projects with an adventurous edge and receiving airplay on our station.

In addition, we co-present non-musical events such as theater, dance, public forums, film screenings, non-profit special interests group fundraisers, lectures, etc… If you have an event that does not fall within the above categories, CKUT is open to suggestions.

Ongoing co-presentation partners include:

  • Pop Montreal
  • Festival Nuits D’Afrique
  • Suoni Per Il Popolo
  • Osheaga
  • RIDM (Montreal International Documentary Festival)
  • Festival du Nouveau Cinéma
  • Hip Hop You Don’t Stop
  • Montreal Anarchist Bookfair

What We Ask For:

In exchange, the event organizer agrees to place our logo on all promotional materials for the event (posters, flyers, print advertising, etc). We also ask that you pick up CKUT promotional material to be displayed at the event.

Although the retail value of these packages are upwards of $1000, CKUT Co-Presentations are available starting at $350 (plus tax). CKUT may agree to negotiate this fee on a sliding scale with a minimum charge to cover administration/production and airtime. This decision will be made by the Steering Committee upon evaluation of your proposal.

Please email to learn more.

Funding Drive Partners

CKUT holds an annual Funding Drive where we gather donations from our devoted listeners. It’s a unique opportunity for us to connect with CKUT lovers across the island and beyond, many of whom have been listening to the station and pitching in for decades. The spirit of the station and what makes it special is always especially vivid around this time, and our continued existence is thanks to each and every person who has ever chipped in.

We partner with a variety of local businesses to offer gifts to donors who contribute during the funding drive. In exchange, Funding Drive sponsors get their names and logos boosted across our website, social media, and on the airwaves.
