Londoners are starting to get an idea of how the 2019 JUNO Awards will sound at Budweiser Gardens.
At a news conference Thursday morning, officials unveiled the first performer.
Loud Luxury, a pair of DJs who met at Western University in London, are currently enjoying massive success from their radio and club hit Body featuring Brando. The track is certified seven times platinum in Canada and their latest single Love No More featuring Anders is certified gold in Canada.

“I grew up here. It’s been great for me, I love London, it’s my home. My family’s still here and I always come back whenever we’re in town, so it’s really special,” said Andrew Fedyk of Loud Luxury.
“I went to Western, so I spent an incredible four years here. Most of my family’s from here so I end up coming back a lot. It’s a great city to be a part of,” Loud Luxury’s other half, Joe De Pace, added.
