Lots of great bands are on the Polaris Music Prize long list

Grimes, Dilly Dally, PUP and White Lung all feature.
The long list has been revealed for this year’s Polaris Music Prize, the Canadian equivalent of the Mercury.

The award – which was won last year by Buffy Sainte-Marie’s ‘Power in the Blood’, and comes with a $50,000 – releases both a long list and a short list prior to the final winner.

This year’s long list includes Dilly Dally, Drake, Grimes, the Weeknd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Peaches, Destroyer, PUP, White Lung, and many more.

The short list will be announced on 14th July, followed by the winner on 19th September. Find the full long list here.
