JUNO Awards stage sneak peek at the Air Canada Centre
The Air Canada Centre stage is looking fantastic for the 40th JUNO Awards show on Sunday, March 27th.
"It’s incredible. 40 years ago when the JUNOS started, one of the organizers made sandwiches, it wasn’t televised, there were few people, it was more like a picnic and there were 15 awards maybe. Now 40 years later, there are 40 awards. Every kind of music is represented in the landscape of Canadian culture," says John Brunton, Executive Producer of the JUNO Awards.
"We’re tipping our hat to the legends that were the foundation of the Canadian industry. But with Drake hosting, it’s as much a look forward to the next 40 years as it is looking backwards. We’re sending out a love letter to Toronto, which is a city that rivals other many in the world as one of the major music centers. So there’s music for every single taste and it’s going to be a great opportunity for fans to discover new acts and fall in love with new bands so I think we’re literally appealing to every taste in Canadian music," says Brunton.
