Polar Music Prize.
Here are things I didn't know about the Polar Music Prize:
1. It was started by Stig Anderson, manager of Abba.
2. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden presents the prize.
3. Each winner gets money-- a million kronor.
4. It's not the Polaris Music Prize, which is what I thought, which is actually awarded to the best Canadians and not presented by a King.
This year the Kronos Quartet and Patti Smith won. Awesome and congrats. Last year it was Ennio Morricone and Björk. Also awesome.
