Polaris Music Prize Gala Tickets Officially On Sale
These general admission tickets are for seating in The Carlu balcony and are available in extremely limited quantities (6 ticket limit per household). They are guaranteed to sell out.
The annual Gala is where the winner of the Polaris Music Prize — the award that honours the best Canadian music album of the year based solely on artistic merit, without consideration of genre or record sales — gets determined. This year’s Polaris Gala will feature performances from numerous acts whose albums were nominated for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize Short List.
These albums are:
Black Mountain – IV
Basia Bulat – Good Advice
Grimes – Art Angels
Carly Rae Jepsen – E•MO•TION
Kaytranada – 99.9%
Jessy Lanza – Oh No
PUP – The Dream Is Over
Andy Shauf – The Party
U.S. Girls – Half Free
White Lung – Paradise
A number of exciting new elements are on tap for this year’s Gala. Balcony patrons can expect a rich and improved sonic experience, as well as new and easier ways to purchase drinks. Additionally, attendees will be outfitted with a cutting edge new RFID wristband developed specifically for Polaris that shocks people with a mild electrical charge when they talk during performances.
Gala performers and presenters will be announced in mid-August.
