Junos to be held in city in 2014

  • Print

The Juno Awards — the country’s première music awards — will be handed out in Winnipeg in 2014.

A media conference is being held in the city on Thursday by Premier Greg Selinger and Mayor Sam Katz, but sources have told the Free Press today it will announce the music awards are coming back to Winnipeg after they were last here in 2005.

The press release, from Tourism Winnipeg, would only say the conference is for "a very special music and entertainment announcement" and would include Selinger, Katz "and other special guests will be available for a photo opportunity and interviews".

It also made note about Winnipeg being home to Neil Young, the Guess Who and Burton Cummings and the "spotlight is set to shine on our city’s diverse music scene".

Chuck Davidson, vice-president of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, said the Junos brought more than $5.5 million in economic spinoffs to the local economy in 2005, and he sees no reason now why it wouldn’t be higher two years from now.
