The musical lineup is set.

The full list of bands scheduled to play during Junofest in Saskatoon was announced Thursday morning, featuring dozens of talented musicians and tons of local talent. Saskatchewan artists including One Bad Son, W3APONS, Denise Valle, The Pistolwhips, and Eliza Doyle fill the list of more than 50 performers involved in the two-day Junofest concerts.

Junofest is part of the Juno Week celebrations that are set to take over Saskatoon in the week leading up to the awards show itself on Sunday, March 15. The event takes place on Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 and features concerts at a dozen venues throughout Saskatoon.


Artists have already been finalized for other Juno Week musical events in Saskatoon, like the Junofest Jazz Showcase, the CBC Music Classical Showcase, and the Juno Kick-Off Concert featuring The Sheepdogs as the headline performers. 

The Juno Awards broadcast will take place on March 15 at the SaskTel Centre. Canadian music sensation Alessia Cara will be the host of the awards show on Sunday night, and is nominated for the most awards in the show — six of them.
