Music fans will flock to Calgary in March next year for the 2016 JUNO Awards. It will be the second time that Calgary has had the privilege of hosting Canada’s music awards (the first time was in 2008). The city is known for its hospitality, and that trait helped make the 2008 Juno Awards a huge success. And although Calgary is recognized for its Western heritage, but it’s also the center of a blossoming arts and music scene. In fact, 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).
The 2016 JUNO Awards and JUNO Week celebrations will last from March 28-April 3. The 45th annual JUNO Awards will be broadcast on CTV from The Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday, April 3, 2016. The 2016 Juno Awards will present another great opportunity to display Calgary’s talent, to encourage the music industry and culture, and to introduce guests to all this wonderful city has to offer.
