If this was a regular year, many of you would be planning to ring in the New Year with thousands of strangers at Celebration Square in Mississauga–but this is far from a regular year.

Fortunately for residents, the city is still working to make New Year’s Eve special for everyone who will be celebrating the holiday at home. 

Earlier this month, the city announced that 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 Dec. 31 through Spotify and Apple Music, the playlist includes this year’s top tracks as well as hits from emerging artists from Mississauga. 

Residents are also encouraged to share their favourite 2020 track with @mcsevents social channels to have it featured in the playlist. 

Leading up to New Year’s Eve 2021, MCS will release video interviews with some of Mississauga’s top artists as well as with Mayor Bonnie Crombie. Mississauga native and Toronto Maple Leafs in-arena host, Scott Willats, will host the MCS video series. 

Interviewees include pop artist IAMREBELWILL, 2019 CBC Searchlight winner Shopé and Melxdie, an emerging pop singer.  

Residents should also note that from Dec. 31 to January 3, they can stream the ♥ MCS NYE Playlist, share it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram Stories and tag @mcsevents to be entered to win a $100 Tim Horton’s Gift Card!
