2016 JUNO Awards playing it loud in Calgary

In case you haven't heard... the 2016 JUNO Awards are coming to Calgary!

In this Year of Music, The City of Calgary is pleased to be a member of the 2016 JUNO Awards host committee, OutLoudYYC, to showcase our vibrant local music scene and welcome Canada’s top music industry professionals and fans from all over the world.

"Bringing the JUNO Awards to Calgary has great benefit to our city," says Sarah Iley, manager of Arts & Culture with The City of Calgary, "Not only by showcasing
our home-grown talent, but also in terms of economic stimulation for all kinds of local businesses. We encourage Calgarians to demonstrate what a lively music city Calgary is, and take part in the numerous events that are happening leading up to the JUNO Awards.”

Calgarians already have and will continue to enjoy a multitude of JUNO events including local artists at small venues during JUNO Fest, microgrant performances, pop-up concerts, autograph signings, JUNO Cup, JUNOS on the CTrain, Songwriter’s Circle, Canadian art exhibit, the Indigenous Showcase and many more.

First to check out is JUNO Hub, a storefront space celebrating Canada’s musical history that is now open in The Core from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The JUNO Hub features JUNO-related artifacts – photo exhibits, JUNO Cup Jerseys, shoes worn by previous JUNO winners and other musical memorabilia including the JUNO Award itself - and is staffed by music loving volunteers prepared to answer questions about all JUNO week events and community activations.
