The JUNO Awards are coming back to Vancouver in 2025! This will mark the fifth time the awards have been held in the city.
JUNO Awards in Vancouver 2025
The 2025 JUNO Week will be held from Wednesday, March 26 to Sunday, March 30, concluding with the 54th Annual JUNO Awards Broadcast, airing live on CBC and CBC Gem from Rogers Arena.
Vancouver previously hosted the awards in 2018, with Michael Bublé as host. The 2018 JUNO Awards Week was resoundingly well received, with nearly 29,000 attendees. These activities also generated $10.9 million in economic activity in British Columbia, and a $5.8 million boost to the province’s GDP.
The 2018 JUNOs in Vancouver also created opportunities for free concerts and events all throughout Metro Vancouver.
The Province of British Columbia is investing $2 million towards the cost of hosting the awards so that British Columbians and visitors can participate in community-driven events throughout the province during the five-day JUNO Week festivities.
“With the strength of our vibrant music industry, British Columbia is the perfect place to host the JUNO Awards, said Lana Popham, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport. “We can’t wait to welcome music lovers and artists from across the country to Vancouver in 2025. Being the host of the JUNO Awards means more than just enjoying good music. It’s also an opportunity to drive tourism, which will create more jobs and support local businesses. This is a unique moment to celebrate our success in transforming B.C. into a national music hub through our Amplify BC investment.”
As the biggest celebration of Canadian music talent, the JUNO Awards are expected to bolster economic activity by attracting tens of thousands of visitors to take part in JUNO Week festivities, resulting in an increase in hotel bookings, more customers for local restaurants, and a boost to various sectors of the hospitality industry.
Those who wish to be in the audience at the 54th annual awards show can sign up for first access ticket on-sale information and updates.
The 2024 JUNOS are in Halifax, hosted by legendary singer, songwriter and pop superstar, Nelly Furtado.
