End the night with a spectacular fireworks show presented by Tim Hortons at 10 pm to commemorate Canada’s birthday.

Spitty is an Indian-Canadian rapper from Brampton who is building up a buzz with a dedicated and growing fanbase from around the world. In 2021, Spitty released his debut album Full Circle, receiving praise from many publications including Rolling Stone India & Much Music, showcasing both his national and international reach. Off the strength of the album, Spitty headlined his own Toronto concert and performed across southern Ontario before taking his music on the road for a 6-week USA tour in early 2022. He has since continued the momentum, having just performed at DesiFest at Dundas Square, Canadian Music Week, NXNE, and BVX Fest in Downtown Brampton.
Now, Spitty aims to release new hit music and continue his journey of high energy live shows.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids are a First Nations hip hop duo composed of Haisla rappers Darren "Young D" Metz and Quinton "Yung Trybez" Nyce. They are originally from Kitamaat Village, British Columbia, and currently based in Vancouver. Their 2017 album The Average Savage was shortlisted for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize, and they were nominated for a Juno Award Indigenous Music Album of the Year at the Juno Awards in 2019 and 2022.

Kardinal Offishall is a rapper, record producer, DJ, and record executive. Often credited as Canada's "hip hop ambassador", he is regarded as one of the country's best hip hop artists and is best known for his distinctive reggae and dancehall-influenced style of hip hop.
