The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and CBC have announced that London, ON’s own Loud Luxury, are set to perform at The 2019 JUNO Awards, taking place at London’s Budweiser Gardens. The Juno Awards broadcast will go live across Canada on CBC, CBC Radio, and globally on CBCMusic.ca/junos at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 17, 2019.
“We are very excited that our first performer announcement for the 2019 JUNOS is a duo that met at Western University and are now on the top of the global charts,” says Allan Reid, president and CEO of CARAS/The Juno Awards and MusiCounts. London band Loud Luxury will take the stage at Budweiser Gardens and celebrate their homecoming. "We are thrilled to welcome an amazing local success to the JUNOS stage – these two have been setting the dance music world on fire and we can’t wait for everyone to see what they have in store.”
University friends and Western alumni, Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace, better known as Loud Luxury, have garnered the support of tastemakers such as Armin Van Buuren, Martin Garrix, and Tiesto – with only a handful of releases under their belt. Hot on the heels of their massive radio and club hit, “Body,” featuring Brando, the duo performed over 150 dates across North America. The track is now certified seven-times platinum in Canada and their latest single, “Love No More” featuring Anders, has spent the last several weeks on multiple Billboard Dance Charts, and is certified gold in Canada.
Additional announcements for The 2019 JUNO Awards Broadcast will be released in the coming months.
