A marquee event for the Canadian music industry
Every year the Polaris Music Prize rewards the best full-length Canadian album based on artistic merit, regardless of genre, sales, or record label. Hosted by CBC Music’s Raina Douris, the 14th annual edition of the ceremony took place at The Carlu in Toronto on September 16, 2019. Nine of the ten shortlisted acts performed: PUP, Les Louanges, Marie Davidson, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Shad, FET.NAT, Elisapie, Dominique Fils-Aimé and Haviah Mighty (winner of the 2019 prize, presented by 2018 winner Jeremy Dutcher). To ensure the popular gala’s technical needs were met, and that the live broadcast on CBC would be as spectacular as the talent of the artists being showcased, the Polaris Music Prize relied on Solotech to provide the live production solutions and services.
