The Gala de l’ADISQ festivities have officially kicked off. As major partner for the 8th year, SiriusXM was at l’Autre Gala, broadcasted live last night on MusiquePlus and Musimax, to present the Félix award ‘Artiste québécois s’étant le plus illustré hors Québec’ to winner Arcade Fire.
As part of the Gala de l’ADISQ, broadcast by Radio-Canada on Sunday, October 26, SiriusXM is associated with 4 out of 11 Félix Awards: ‘Interprète masculin de l’année’, ‘Interprète féminine de l’année’, ‘Groupe de l’année’ and ‘Révélation de l’année’.
In that last category, SiriusXM is absolutely dedicated to the next generation of artists. In addition to the platform granted by the Gala in this category, SiriusXM gives each of the 5 nominees carte blanche for a 30-second airtime ad that will be broadcast during the Gala. These clips will be posted on the Facebook page of SiriusXM Franco next Sunday at 7:00 pm. This is all part of SiriusXM's ongoing initiatives to provide exposure to and support Québec talent.
To capture the effervescence of this major musical summit, radio stations Attitude Franco (Sirius 164) and Influence Franco (XM 174) will once again present a program live from the Gala de l’ADISQ pressroom, offering immediate live interviews with the evening’s winners. Broadcast at 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. and hosted by Andréanne Sasseville and Jean- Philippe Lavoie, the program will also revisit highlights from l’Autre Gala.
