The Juno Awards are heading back to Hamilton next year.

The 44th annual Juno Awards will broadcast from Copps Coliseum on Sunday, March 15, 2015, with weeklong events planned in the city.

“Bringing the Juno Awards back to Hamilton offers the opportunity to further support and develop the city and province’s vibrant music scene,” said Melanie Berry, President & CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards, in a release.

Steeltown last hosted the awards in 2001, with previous stops in the city in 1995, 1996, 1997, and 1999.

Last year, Hamilton boasted several homegrown winners including Monster Truck, Steve Strongman, Elliott Brood and The City Harmonic.

This year’s Juno awards will be held in Winnipeg, March 24-30.
