Emerging from Montreal in the early 2000s, Arcade Fire quickly earned a reputation as “the greatest live band in the world” (per the Daily Telegraph), while building a JUNO, Grammy and BRIT Award-winning discography. Their debut album Funeral, released in 2004, earned the group JUNO and Grammy nominations, and was chosen by Rolling Stone as the Number 1 album of the ‘00s.
The band released four more critically and commercially acclaimed albums with accolades that include 11 JUNO Award wins, 27 nominations and a Grammy Award win for Album of the Year for The Suburbs. No strangers to the JUNOS stage, this will be the fourth time the group entertains audiences in celebration of Canada’s biggest night in music.
The 51st annual JUNO Awards and JUNO Week 2022 will be hosted in Toronto, ON from May 9 through May 15, 2022, culminating in The JUNO Awards Broadcast. Produced by Insight Productions (a Boat Rocker company), The 2022 JUNO Awards, hosted by Simu Liu, will make history on Sunday, May 15 as it broadcasts and streams for the first time from an outdoor venue at Budweiser Stage in Toronto, live across Canada at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBC TV.
