“The New Year marks a time to gather, celebrate, reflect on the past year, and look forward to the new one and fresh opportunities ahead,” said Mayor Patrick Brown. “We look forward to welcoming 2023 with amazing live entertainment, including headliner The Beaches, and ten-minutes of fireworks in Downtown Brampton.”
The Beaches are an authentically rock ‘n’ roll band with a ’70s aesthetic, unapologetic attitude, and electrifying sound that fits harmoniously in a modern rock context. Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel (on drums), and Leandra Earl (on keys and guitar), the Juno award-winning band has become one of Canada’s top acts with a global reach, marking them one of this generation’s most promising young rock groups.
Jane’s Party traces their origins back to a shared townhouse garage in Toronto’s North York neighborhood, where four friends compiled a few instruments, a random collection of microphones, and some makeshift studio gear to bring a handful of original songs to life. Despite experimenting with different sounds and styles over the past decade-plus, the band’s simple-but-substantial melodies, rich, multi-part harmonies, and mastery of musical dynamism have remained consistent throughout.
DJ Roshanie is known for her silky smooth, nostalgic, and global song selections. When she isn’t DJing across Toronto and Peel, you can find her interviewing musicians and sharing new music on ISO Radio, a community radio station broadcasting from a shipping container at Stackt Market.

“The City’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration is the perfect way to celebrate the past year and welcome 2023. We look forward to ushering in the New Year as a community. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the New Year’s Levee on January 29! Brampton City Council looks forward to meeting with you,” said Deputy Mayor Harkirat Singh.
