CARAS has announced that the JUNO Awards are heading back to Saskatchewan in 2020. Dubbed the "Paris of the Prairies," Saskatoon will once again host the largest music event in the country and all JUNO Week festivities beginning on March 9, culminating with the 49th annual JUNO Awards broadcast live on CBC from the SaskTel Centre on Sunday, March 15, 2020.

For next week's JUNOs, additional performers have been added to the televised show that is taking place on Sunday, March 17, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET from Budweiser Gardens in London, ON. Added to the lineup are Polaris Prize winner Jeremy Dutcher, rising country stars The Reklaws, and Coeur De Pirate with Loud. As previously announced, the 2019 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, Corey Hart, will also perform on live television for the first time in two decades.

The 2019 show will be hosted by 12-time JUNO Award winner Sarah McLachlan, and it will be broadcast live across the country on CBC, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, the free CBC Gem streaming service, and globally at cbcmusic.ca/junos.
