The JUNO Awards “road trip” is saddled up and heading west as The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and broadcast partner CTV announced today that Calgary will host The 2016 JUNO Awards and JUNO Week celebrations, March 28-April 3. The 45th annual JUNO Awards will be broadcast on CTV from The Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday, April 3, 2016.
JUNO Week 2016 will bring the festivities back to Alberta following a community-based bid led by Tourism Calgary. The JUNO Awards are returning to Calgary after the outstanding success of the 2008 JUNO Awards, and this will be the city’s second time hosting Canada’s music awards.
The city is known for its genuine hospitality and uncommon energy – a place where people from around the world come to experience adventure, rich Western heritage and pioneering traditions. Close to the Rocky Mountains and places like Canmore, Banff, and Lake Louise, Calgary straddles some of Canada’s most scenic landscapes, and is also home to an impressive range of talent and an increasingly vibrant arts and music scene.
2015 JUNO Award nominees from Calgary include Chad VanGaalen (Alternative Album of the Year*), Jann Arden (Adult Contemporary Album of the Year) and Kiesza (Single of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year*, Dance Recording of the Year, Video of the Year*).
From 2007 to 2014 the JUNO Awards have created a total economic impact of almost $88 million, including $11.3 million for the 2008 JUNO Awards in Calgary, $14 million for the 2011 JUNO Awards in Toronto, and $10 million for the 2013 JUNO Awards in Regina.< Previous Post Next Post >
