Announced today at a press conference at the London Music Hall, London Ontario will host The 2019 JUNO Awards along with all JUNO Week festivities, March 11 – March 17, 2019.

“We are thrilled to host the 2019 JUNO Week celebrations here in London,” said Chris Campbell, Director of Culture & Entertainment Tourism.  As one of Canada’s emerging cultural scenes we are excited to show the world how culturally rich and diverse London is.”

Campbell said the awards will be an opportunity to showcase London’s hospitality and growing music scene.

The announcement marks the first time London will host the Juno Awards.

Previous cities include St. John’s (2002 and 2010), Ottawa (2003, 2012 and 2017), Edmonton (2004), Winnipeg (2005 and 2014), Halifax (2006), Saskatoon (2007), Calgary (2008 and 2016), Vancouver (2009 and 2018), Toronto (2011), Regina (2013), and Hamilton (2015).

“Ontario is a key music hub in Canada and North America,” said Daiene Vernile, Ontario’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Our vibrant culture is driven by our exceptional talent and diversity, making Ontario a great fit for hosting the JUNO Awards in 2019. We have a thriving music industry that makes a significant contribution to Ontario’s economy by creating jobs, generating sales and building the province’s profile at an international level. I am thrilled to welcome the JUNOS to London.”

Despite a difficult decade for the recording industry, the Juno Awards have been an important economic generator for local music communities, with an average economic impact of $10M for host cities.

The 48th Annual JUNO Awards will be broadcast live on CBC from Budweiser Gardens, on Sunday, March 17, 2019.
