YYCMA Winners

2020 YYCMA Winners

Showcasing and honouring the incredible musical talent produced in the Calgary area, the YYC MUSIC AWARDS, held their 5th annual event on Sunday, September 20th. This year looked a little different, with the Gala being cancelled and the awards being presented virtually through live stream. Calgary’s music community is resilient, diverse, and always stands together. We have a lot to celebrate – each other, our amazing accomplishments, and the wonderful community of music makers and supporters.

Hosted by Curbside Concerts mastermind, Matt Masters, the awards stream recognized artists and industry in 23 categories and saw music videos aired from Lisette Xavier, Troy Kokol, Heyoka’s Mirror, Miesha and the Spanks, and Noah & Lazy.

The YYC Music Awards Board of Directors would like to congratulate the 2020 winners and nominees. To all the sponsors who continued with us and came on board in this tough year to allow us to continue to run the show, THANK YOU! To the artists and industry that submitted their talents, the voting committee from across the country that took precious time to be a part of the process, our exceptionally talented production crew who pulled it all together, our guest presenters who volunteered their time to bring the good news, and all those that have assisted and cheered us on, you make the YYC Music Awards the event that it is – in whatever format it is! And to the managers, promoters, media, live music venues and representatives that keep the music in our city playing – thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.
