After a six-year absence, the Juno Awards will return to Vancouver in 2025, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced today.
The 54th annual Juno Awards will take place at Rogers Arena on Sunday, March 30, 2025, while the usual Juno Week festivities will take place from March 26 to 30.
“The 2018 Junos were an incredible experience with some of the most memorable performances in our history,” said Allan Reid, President and CEO of CARAS and the Juno Awards, via press release. “We are very excited to return to the West Coast for another Junos spectacular in 2025 and to highlight Vancouver’s status as a world-class music destination.”
Vancouver’s previous Juno Awards, held in 2018, were hosted by Michael Bublé and included performances by Daniel Caesar, Diana Krall (with guest Bublé), Jessie Reyez, Lights and more.
“British Columbia is a hotbed of emerging talent. From modern South Asian sounds to a thriving electronic music scene to a strong hip-hop community, B.C.’s music industry is diverse,” said Nate Sabine, Co-Chair of the Vancouver Junos Organizing Committee and President of Music BC “Our goal is to continually create opportunities and build support for a growing music ecosystem.”
The 2024 Juno Awards ceremony, hosted by Nelly Furtado, will take place in Halifax for the first time in nearly two decades. Nominees for this year’s awards will be announced on February 6, and the show will air live across Canada starting at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. AT on CBC-TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, CBC Listen, and globally at CBCMusic.ca/junos and CBC Music Youtube page.
