In 2014, the best in Canadian talent will take centre stage in Winnipeg, Manitoba for the 43rd annual JUNO Awards.
“Winnipeg is an energetic city of music and culture, home to numerous Juno Award winners and nominees,” said Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz. “We’re known for our great food and great hospitality and we can’t wait to welcome the JUNOS to the Heart of the Continent!”
Recently named one of the Culture Capitals of Canada, Winnipeg is home to such acts as The Wailin’ Jennys, Del Barber, Doc Walker, The Weakerthans, Imaginary Cities and many others. The city has a wide diversity of music genres, including award-winning Aboriginal and Francophone artists.
“Manitoba has a rich and diverse musical history – it’s an integral part of our identity and how we’re known around the world,” said Carole Vivier, CEO/Film Commissioner of Manitoba Film & Music and co-chair of the JUNO Host Committee. “As we welcome the JUNOS back to Winnipeg, we could not be more excited about inviting Manitobans to take part in this celebration of our local and national talent.”
Winnipeg previously hosted The JUNO Awards in 2005 at the MTS Centre, one of Canada’s leading entertainment facilities.
In addition to the awards ceremony, JUNO Week 2014 will bring a variety of events including the JUNO Songwriters’ Circle and JUNOfest, which showcases over 100 national and local artists at venues around the city.
“We are delighted that Winnipeg will serve as the Host City to this signature event in 2014,” said Kenny Boyce, Film & Special Events Manager with the City of Winnipeg and co-chair of the JUNO Host Committee. “Winnipeg is experiencing a renaissance that has given the city an unmistakable buzz. Now is the perfect time to capitalize on this momentum.”
