Now that the Geminis are out of the way, it’s time to get ready for the next big Canadian Awards show, The Junos!
This year, The Junos will be taking place in Saint John’s, Newfoundland, so you know they are pretty much going to be the most amazing thing ever! I think it would be safe to a call it a shit-show of epic proportions, in a good way! Dozens of the best artists in the country all on one island, what more could you ask for?!
But if you’ve never been to the Junos before, you should know that one of the best parts of the whole weekend is Junofest. 120 different bands. Dozens of venues. It’s awesome.
I’ve been to the last two Junos and Junofest is by far my favourite part of the whole week, I always discover some really, really great bands.
Some of the bands that have performed in the past include: Arkells, Beast, Bedouin Soundclash, Classified, Divine Brown, Doc Walker, DJ Brace, DL Incognito, Elliott Brood, Elizabeth Shepherd, Famous, Feist, Hey Rosetta!, Julie Doiron, Little Miss Higgins, Marianas Trench, Matt Mays & El Torpedo, The Midway State, MSTRKRFT, Sam Roberts, Shad, Shout Out Out Out Out, Silverstein, Sloan, The Wailin’ Jennys, You Say Party! We Say Die! and Zaki Ibrahim
So if you think you’ve got what it takes, The Junos have started looking for artists to showcase at Junofest!
Applications are open until January 12th, but don’t procrastinate. You know you are going to forget during the holidays!
Good luck and hope to see you there!
