08 NOV 2018: Newfoundland and Labrador's capital city is set to host the 2020 East Coast Music Awards, which will run from April 29 to May 3, 2020 in St. John's. Tourism and Culture Minister Christopher Mitchelmore made the announcement in the House of Assembly Wednesday afternoon.

Mitchelmore said the province's “immense” local talents nabbed 20 nominations at this year's awards held in Halifax this spring.

The province last hosted the awards in 2015. Next year’s ceremony will be held in Charlottetown.

Founded almost 30 years ago, the East Coast Music Association is a regional collaboration of people in the music industry to foster, develop and celebrate Atlantic Canada's music and artists.
