After cancelling the ceremony earlier this year due to the spread of COVID-19, the organizers behind the Junos have announced that the ceremony will be taking place virtually.
The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences alongside broadcast partner CBC announced that the online event will take place on June 29th, kicking off at 7:00 p.m. The virtual Juno Awards will be hosted on CBC Gem, and CBC Music’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter pages in addition to a Juno Awards website.

While the event will be going virtual, there will still be a lineup of guest presenters like Finn Wolfhard and Jessie Reyez and performers like Neon Dreams, iskwē, and the Dead South.
“We are thrilled to finally announce the 2020 Juno winners and recognize all of the incredibly talented artists who’ve been waiting patiently since we had to, unfortunately, cancel Juno Week in Saskatoon,” CARAS/The Juno Awards and MusiCounts president and CEO Allan Reid explains.
