Daniel Lanois in Montreal. Nelly Furtado in Winnipeg. Zachary Richard in Ottawa. Iskwé in Edmonton. Taboo in Vancouver.

Those stars — and some 70 other artists in eight cities — will perform tonight, June 21, as part of Canada’s 11th annual Aboriginal Day Live (ADL). The Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) will present a national broadcast which you can live-stream from 7 pm till 2 am ET. You can also access the complete concerts from all eight locations (each will run about two hours, following an emerging artist pre-show). Visit aboriginaldaylive.ca for times of each concert, performers in each city, and all the live streams. (Update: The livestream from Edmonton will be available 8 pm ET at aboriginaldaylive.ca/edmonton/livestream/.)

ADL is part of Canada’s National Aboriginal Day, celebrating the cultures of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
