Posted on

The JUNOS. BreakOut West. Manitoba Live. Polaris. Calling 2014 the Year of Music in Manitoba is almost an understatement...  

Winnipeg was the official capital of Canadian music as excitement amped up for The 2014 JUNO Awards, which recognized homegrown acts with 13 nominations. The massive event took over Winnipeg in March for a week of fun including packing local venues for JUNOfest, a glittery invite-only gala, and the big ticket televised spectacle at the MTS Centre.
