TORONTO — Arcade Fire have been added as performers to next month’s Juno Awards broadcast.

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences says it will also give the Montreal indie rockers an international achievement award.


Arcade Fire is a leading nominee with four nods — for best group, single, album and alternative album.

Other performers include Jessie Reyez, who is also nominated for four awards.

A week of related Junos events kick off March 19 in Vancouver.

It culminates with the televised awards bash March 25, airing on CBC-TV.
