Shawn Jobin
To carry the banner of french language in western Canada, it requires a mix of verbs and stage presence. A premise custom made for Shawn Jobin, who always has the right word and the rhyme that carries. Shawn Jobin confirms even more with his show Elephant, a trip within where the contradicting thoughts collide. Evolving from a dark musical universe to a more positive one, to jubilant. Shawn Jobin goes back and forth between two musical worlds, from hip hop to electro.

Ponteix
​​​​​​​
Like a wind blowing on the prairies, heard from the Canadian Shield to the doors of the Pacific Ocean, the Saskatoon trio Ponteix delivers indie pop gems, shaped with psychedelic surges and an electronic approach. Linguistic and geographical boundaries do not exist within the band, as their debut EP, J'Orage, was recognized by music critics from both Canada's official languages for their strong melodic work and their risk-taking tour de force songs. Ponteix will unveil a first album in 2018.
