The 2005 Juno Awards took place in Winnipeg on April 3, 2005, after four days of awards-related live events and festivities throughout the city. Canadian touring and production company Sound Art (Canada) provided audio systems comprising gear from Telex Communications pro audio brands Electro-Voice, Dynacord, Midas and Klark Teknik. Visitors were welcomed to the city by local artists who performed on two stages at Winnipeg International Airport through a compact P.A. featuring Dynacord PowerMate mixers and Electro-Voice Sx300 main and monitor speakers.
The main event took place that evening at Winnipeg’s MTS Centre, with live broadcasts of performances by the Tragically Hip, Sum 41, Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter, Simple Plan and k.d. lang. One of the high points of the evening was a tribute to Winnipeg’s music legacy and promising musical future, fronted by festival figureheads Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings, and featuring numerous local artists who performed an array of Guess Who classics to an enthusiastic crowd. Broadcast across Canada was helped out with dozens of channels of Telex BTR wireless and a Telex/RTS ADAM digital matrix for the production staff. Sound production for the awards ceremony was from Mr. Mix Audio.
