Take part in Canada Day celebrations at Major’s Hill Park. A variety of cultural performances, displays and exhibits are planned throughout the day. You can be both spectator and participant—there are lots of activities to suit everyone.
The evening show at Major’s Hill Park will feature Shawn Hook (British Columbia), Andie Duquette (Quebec) and DJ Ilon (Ontario) on the Hudson’s Bay Stage.
The day will end with a bang with the President’s Choice pyromusical Fireworks.
Shawn Hook’s last album, 2012’s Cosmonaut and the Girl, was out of this world, yielding three Top 20 hits, “Every Red Light,” “So Close” and “Two Hearts Set On Fire,” and setting him up for a promising career. His electro-injected dance-pop earned a Juno nomination for Breakthrough Artist, a national tour with Midway State, and a dedicated fan-base proudly named Hooksters. The accomplished singer-pianist is now working on his new album for Universal Music Canada, due mid-2015.
The first single, “Million Ways,” shows the Vancouver native moving even further from his acoustic roots. The song is a mix of pop, disco, soul, R&B and electronica and showcases Shawn’s enviable falsetto.
Andie se fait connaître du grand public en 2013 alors qu’elle participe à la première édition de l’émission La Voix diffusée sur le réseau TVA. Elle est recrutée dans l’équipe de Marc Dupré qui l’invite ensuite à participer à ses deux dernières tournées de festivals partout en province.
Today, you will still catch Dj iLon spinning at local hot spots and at private / corporate events such as Angie’s Model Talent’s Annual Show Case or Holt Renfrew’s Private Shopping Events. The newest enhancements to his sets is the added component of music videos that are played in sync with the music – mashed up and remixed along with his audio!
