Submit now for 2018 JUNOs Experience Music Program

December 11, 2017

People, businesses, and community in British Columbia are invited to submit applications for the 2018 JUNOs Experience Music Program, which will inject a total of $25,000 into the music community throughout the province in the months leading up to JUNO celebrations.

Artists, venues, promoters, and music industry entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $1,000 each, to present unique musical experiences that will engage audiences across the Lower Mainland, and in communities throughout B.C.

Developed by the 2018 JUNO Host Committee and supported by Music BC and Creative BC, the program is intended to:

  • celebrate local music, build community and support creativity;
  • open opportunities for local musicians to connect with new audiences;
  • present music in a variety of venues, across B.C.;
  • grow community by promoting local music and creating connections between local musicians, promoters, BIAs and the music industry at large;
  • build excitement for the 2018 JUNO Awards, to be held on March 25, 2018, at Rogers Arena; and
  • create inclusive, safe spaces where music can flourish focusing on the rich diversity of the region.

Any person, business or community organization from British Columbia may apply for the Experience Music Program, if their event will take place in British Columbia, be held in February or March of 2018, and focus on the presentation or promotion of local music in a way that supports the goals above. While applicants of all experience levels are accepted, previous experience presenting successful music events is an asset.

Applications close Dec. 31, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. PST, and successful applicants will be notified by Jan. 15, 2018. You can apply here.
