As a company of music lovers, Lixar is proud to be the official sponsor of the 2017 Long List and a supporter of Canadian music. Lixar was also the official sponsor of the Inside the Long List podcast, which featured a panel of five Polaris jurors and a performance by Long List nominee Philippe B.
In honour of the Long List, Steve Jordan from Polaris made a quick stop in our Ottawa office for a Lunch & Learn to talk about the intricacies of the prize, how the selection process works, why it’s important to musicians, and music culture in Canada.
We’re honoured to celebrate and discover the artists on this year’s Long List, and we encourage you to discover what the Canadian music community has to offer.
The Polaris Music Prize Short List will be announced July 13th, with the Prize being awarded at a Gala this September.
