On June 13, Polaris and Lixar will partner to present a special live edition of the Polaris Podcast. The free event will take place in Ottawa at the National Arts Centre (NAC) at 7 PM and is open to the public. The participating roundtable of jurors and special guests, who will be announced in the coming days, will discuss this year’s 40 album Polaris Music Prize Long List, to be revealed that afternoon.
About the partnership, Bill Syrros, CEO of Lixar states, “Music is more than just the backdrop to our day to day. It’s what inspires us to create, innovate, and connect. We’re thrilled to partner with the Polaris Music Prize, who honour the artists that speak to Canadians and the world at large.”
In a similar vein, Polaris founder Steve Jordan says “In Lixar, we are very excited to have a partner that believes in the integrity of the Polaris process, and are true fans of the records that emerge from that process. They are strong believers in music and community, and their support of the Long List and this event are evidence of that support.”

Hello, I’m Chloe from Montreal! I am a 26 year old McGill and Concordia graduate in physiology and psychology. While my career path has fallen more into the education field, music, reading, and writing remain three of my strongest passions. Despite this, I have been told more than once that I have the worst singing voice in the entire world. Because the life of a musician has not worked out for me, I instead attend concerts and write about them. Many of them. I have been known to overuse the word “favorite,” especially when talking about music.
