2014 ADISQ Main Gala Felix Award Winners

Felix Trophy2014’s main ADISQ gala was held tonight honouring the best in Canadian Franco music. Most of the Félix Awards were handed out on Wednesday at L’Autre Gala, the winners of which are here. Below is a list of nominees in selected categories with tonight’s winner bolded in red. You can find a complete list (in French) of nominees and winners here. ADISQ is the music industry organization in Quebec that hands out awards named in honour of Canadian folk superstar Felix Leclerc. While awards are mainly given out to Quebec artists performing music in the French language, the industry also awards Anglo works from Quebec, Franco works from other provinces and internationally. The awards were created in 1979 in response to sentiment that the JUNO awards did not pay adequate attention to Francophone Canadian artists.
