Polaris Gala Tickets On Sale To Public For The First Time

· by Aaron Brophy

For the first time ever normal human people will now have the opportunity to attend the Polaris Music Prize Gala.

Happening Monday, September 23 at the very swag Carlu in Toronto, Ontario, a very limited number of tickets are now for sale to the public for an all-in cost of $50 available through our friends at Ticketfly.

With the price of admission you’ll be able to see various to-be-determined acts from the recently announced Short List perform and watch those same people milling about at tables pretending they don’t actually want to win the $30,000 award and its giant novelty cheque. You’ll also get to do this while surrounded by the best of this country’s music media, industry wonks and guest list schemers.

In short, it will be awesome.

Of special note. These available tickets are for the Carlu’s balcony section. Because of Ontario’s byzantine liquor laws said balcony will be a dry county. Fear not, though. Those planning “How Many Times Will Polaris Gala Co-Host Kathleen Edwards Swear?” drinking contests will be able to take advantage of bar service in the venue’s lower level.


Stay up to date with the latest in the industry.
