2016 ADISQ Nominations!

gala_adisq

The music industry of Quebec has unveiled nominations for the 2016 ADISQ galas which will take place at the end of October. The awards honour most of Canada’s musique Francophone, though it is important to note that the ADISQ galas award Anglo, Allo, and instrumental music made in Quebec as well as international Franco music. It is also important to acknowledge that there is some Franco music being made outside of Quebec in other provinces. The ADISQ provides a nice complement to the JUNO awards, the latter slanted heavily towards Canadian Anglo music.

As in past years, there will be three ADISQ galas: an industry awards, hosted by Claudine Prévost, Thursday October 27th at 5:00 p.m. local time; the first ADISQ gala, hosted by Sébastien Diaz, which will hand out the bulk of the trophies, Thursday October 27th at 8:00 p.m.; and the main gala, hosted for the 11th consecutive year by Louis-José Houde, Sunday, October 30th at 7:30 p.m. Coeur de pirate, Safia Nolin and 2Frères have 5 nominations each. Find a list of selected nominations below (please forgive us for any misspellings). You can view the entire slate here.
