Carly Rae Jepsen to Lead New Year's Eve Party on Parliament Hill
With Canada soon turning 150 years old, Parliament Hill is set to party extra hard this New Year's Eve with a ton of fireworks and our very own Carly Rae Jepsen.

On December 31, Carly Rae will headline the a Peace Tower carillon concert, the Department of Heritage announced today (November 28), with festivities starting at 7 p.m. local time. Following a ceremony, a "pyro-musical display" will kick off simultaneously at 8:17 p.m. from Parliament Hill, the Alexandra Bridge and Nepean Point, revisiting "different historical eras of our country over the past 150 years."

Acadian hip-hop crew Radio Radio will then play at 9 p.m. and Alberta singer-songwriter Brett Kissel will follow at 10 p.m. Carly Rae will then close the night, with a New Year's countdown closing things down with another, more traditional fireworks display.

Of course this will hardly be the only big NYE party going down this year; as previously reported, the Sheepdogs, New Pornographers, Wintersleep, Yukon Blonde, Humans and more will play a big event in Vancouver. You can learn more about it here.
