We all know the JUNOs are going to be one massive party Sunday night featuring some of the best musicians in the country.
But what does it take to put it all together?
This year the JUNOs are even bigger than ever and that’s not just the extra half hour of show.
More sound, more lights, more stage all have to be meticulously put together by more crew before the first of more cameras roll at show time.
Ottawa Life got a closer look –we’re talking Bryan Adams dressing room kind of close– at the production only a few days away from the big night and now we’re going to let you peak behind the curtain for a glimpse of what it takes to bring such a massive show to the music loving masses!
