In Focus: The 2018 Juno Awards
What’s better than celebrating The Juno Awards? Celebrating AT The JUNO Awards!
From March 23-25, we had the privilege of visiting Vancouver and covering Canada’s biggest music event of the year. From JUNOFest to the red carpet to the actual awards show to the after parties, it was non-stop hustle and endless excitement. But the long days and the even longer nights were more than worth it.
It didn’t hurt that there was a whole lotta love for Indigenous artists at this year’s JUNOs, giving us plenty to cover.
In addition to the legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie winning Indigenous Music Album of the Year (Medicine Songs) and A Tribe Called Red becoming the first Indigenous group to win Group of the Year, Iskwé blew us away with an electric set at the JUNO Gala and The Jerry Cans brought a little bit of Nunavut to the stage with their prime-time performance on Sunday night. We also got to hang out with Kelly Fraser and Indian City, and caught performances by Kinnie Starr, JB The First Lady and DJ Shub.
Here’s a look back at our weekend in photos.
