The Juno Awards. Canada’s Grammys, as some people like to refer to them as. It’s a huge honour in this country. A huge celebration of music and what Canada has to offer. And well because it’s a Canadian event it also happens to be one giant party that even includes a hockey game! (Oh Canada).
This year, the party happens to be taking place in my hometown of Calgary! I couldn’t be more excited. And to add to that excitement, Canadian Beats has been given the “in”. We will be your source of everything Junos, behind the scenes, photos, live shows, the score of the Juno Cup game..you name it, we got it.
To start that behind the scenes look, why not give you a look into the set up of the Scotiabank Saddledome on day two. 3,400 person hours, 97 TV tech personnel, 6,600 ft of camera cable, 13,800 amps of show power and not to mention 41 million pixels of video LED panels (more than ever before), just to name a few of the incredible things happening in preparation for this years show. We took a tour of the set up including this years host, Jann Arden’s dressing room, and even the seat cards where the stars themselves will take in what the 2016 Junos has to offer. Take a look at some of the pictures we snapped, and keep your eyes on Canadian Beats for more of your Junos Awards 2016 coverage.
I’m Heather Young. I am 29 years old and from Calgary. I’m the mother of a 6 year old boy and I work with children as a developmental assistant. I have always had a passion for writing and music so working for Canadian Beats is right up my alley. I love every genre of music as long as it catches my attention, it’s on my playlist, from rap to country. When I’m not working or writing I love to spend time outside with my son playing games or going for walks.
