Entertainment and activities | December 11, 2020

Dance in your living room, have a New Year’s toast in your kitchen or just sit back and relax in the comforts of home – since New Year’s Eve looks a little different this year, Mississauga Celebration Square (MCS) is putting together a selection of 21 hit tracks for residents to ring in 2021 safely at home: The MCS NYE Playlist.

Available on December 31, through Spotify and Apple Music, this special playlist, in lieu of an in-person event at the Square, includes this year’s top tracks as well as hits from emerging artists from Mississauga!

Leading up to New Year’s Eve 2021, Mississauga Celebration Square will release video interviews with some of Mississauga’s top artists as well as with Mayor Crombie. Mississauga native and Toronto Maple Leafs in-arena host, Scott Willats, will host the MCS video series. You can watch the videos on social media by following MCS on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

  • IAMREBELWILL – Pop artist IAMREBELWILL is influenced by the showmanship of Janet Jackson, the eclectic artistry of Prince and the sounds of Montreal-based producer, Kaytranada.
