The 2022 JUNO Awards are set to return to Toronto this May at Budweiser Stage! Announced today are the first round of performers including Arkells, pop punk icon Avril Lavigne, Montreal music maven Charlotte Cardin and acclaimed singer, songwriter and poet Mustafa. The open-air event will be hosted by none other than Toronto’s own Simu Liu, star of SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS!
Allan Reid of CARAS spoke to Media earlier today about the decision to bring the JUNOs outdoors. “The whole idea behind it was let’s make the JUNOs the kick-off to summer concert season. Let’s get everyone back and gathered. This is the first time since 2019 we’ve been in-person”, says Reid. “We can’t change mother nature or weather. I went to Budweiser Stage on May 15 last year to see what it felt like and it was 22°c, the sun was setting at 8 pm. This is our first ever outdoor JUNOs!”.
The Broadcast Gala airs 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, CBC Listen, and globally at CBCMusic.ca/junos and CBC Music’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages.
