Welcome to the Hamilton home of the 2015 JUNO Awards.

Hamilton was thrilled to be hosting the country’s premier music experience with a week’s worth of great music events culminating with the nationally broadcast awards show at FirstOntario Centre on March 15, 2015.

Home to a vibrant arts scene and a proud musical history, Hamilton has ties to countless music legends including Ronnie Hawkins, Stan Rogers, John Ellison, Boris Brott, Teenage Head, Harrison Kennedy and countless others. We’ve also given rise to JUNO Award-winning artists like Arkells, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Rita Chiarelli, Caribou, Daniel Lanois, Monster Truck and Steve Strongman.

Authentic, proud and welcoming, Hamilton celebrated the best in Canadian music with music lovers from across the country.

The JUNO Awards are produced annually by CARAS (The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences). For more information about 44th Annual JUNO Awards, visit junoawards.ca.
