Summer 2018 has seen some spectacular music festivals come and go thus far, but some of the best are yet to come! There are still a number of great festivals taking place across Canada in August, September, and even October, so get your passes because they are selling out fast.
If work, distance, or other commitments put these massive events out of reach, fear not! There is plenty of action and foot stompin’ music to be enjoyed at our online casino, and if you fancy yourself a star, you can always give the reels of a game like Karaoke Party a spin!
