Juno-nominated Canadian pop star Shawn Hook will headline New Year’s Eve celebrations in Brampton next month.
Hook, an electronic pop and rock artist, is best known for his radio hits “Reminding Me” and “Sound of Your Heart” and “Million Ways”.
The city announced Friday that Hook will perform along with a bunch of other local musicians. The musical acts were curated with help from local record label SoundDrive Records and will feature the Julian Taylor Band, as well as Brampton-based artists, Raz, Melle Rose and DJ Tam.
DJ Tam will kick off the party in Garden Square at 8 pm, followed by a performance from Melle Rose. The first of two fireworks displays is set for 9 pm for those wanting to ring in the New Year a little earlier in the evening. The live entertainment will continue after the early fireworks with performances from Raz followed by the Julian Taylor Band.
Shawn Hook will take the stage just after 11 pm, leading up to the countdown to the new year and the second fireworks display at midnight.
