DAY 2: UMUSIC X JUNOS

After the first, and fabulous, day of JUNOS weekend, we knew Day 2 would deliver! Before leaving our hotel this morning, we got decked out in our Lululemon clothing and joined their refreshing yoga class. Some others, brave souls, took to the cold outdoors for a 5 and 10k run. They’re the real winners!

Fully refreshed, we headed to JUNO Fan Fare to watch fans meet some of their fave artists. Here’s a little peak:

After JUNO Fan Fare, we played a quick round of games & got a quick round of Steam Whistle beers in the Universal Music House – game room!! We’re kinda obsessed with the fact that it’s open 24/7.

We then jazzed up our outfits and headed straight for the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards. This is where all of the JUNOS that you don’t see awarded on Sunday, are given away! So many of our artists took home so many great awards:
