It’s back! The City of Timmins has released the lineup for the second year of Stars & Thunder – Timmins International Fireworks & Music Festival, and they’ve outdone themselves.

This eight day music and fireworks festival extravaganza launched the summer of 2017 as part of Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations, and has been welcomed back by the community June 24 to July 1, 2018. Encompassing Saint Jean Baptiste Day and Canada Day, an international fireworks competition and display, and some favourite Canadian bands, Stars & Thunder 2018 is already marked on our calendars!

Without further ado, here are the acts you’ll be rocking out to in 2018.
