Calgary’s 2016 JUNOfest Celebration Details & More!
What is it?
JUNOfest is a two-day celebration of music coinciding with the 2016 JUNO awards weekend. Its purpose is to showcase the existing and up and coming musical talent across Canada.
JUNOfest will be taking place on Friday, April 1st and Saturday, April 2nd, 2016. Performances are set to run between 9:00pm and 2:00am, although some venues have acquired special licenses to serve alcohol until 3:00am and close at 4:00am!
Where is it?
JUNOfest 2016 will be happening at several different venues in Calgary, Alberta. To be exact, 15 different venues will be host to over 100 different bands during the two day event!
Most of these venues will have anywhere from three to five performers throughout the night, compiling up to about 100 different artists from a full spectrum of musical genres!
Which Venues Have Last Call at 3:00am?
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, if 2:00am seems a bit early to you, then you’ll want to buy a ticket to one of the events happening at these locations:
- Blues Can
- Broken City
- Flames Central
- Nite Owl
- Delta Calgary Downtown
- Fairmont Palliser
- Hyatt Regency Calgary
- The Westin Calgary
While some of these locations will also close at 3:00am, some will extend open hours until 4:00am.
How much is it?
JUNOfest wristbands are currently on sale for $30.00 a piece from TicketFly.com. These wristbands give you VIP access to all venues participating in the weekend Calgary festival.
Individual tickets for those venues, however, have to be purchased at the door or beforehand. If you are keen on getting into a particular show, the wristbands may not be such a bad idea!
Why go to JUNOfest?
Apart from last call and closing hours being extended at many venues, JUNOfest offers a wide range of genres at several different venues around town.
Pick and choose your favourite band / DJ / performer, then get ready to have some legit weekend fun on the first few days of April 2016!
We hope you have fun!
