Snap Boogie – this top-12 finalist from season 6 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent takes no prisoners in his multi-disciplinary dance show.

Nathaniel Rankin – the current Canadian Champion of Magic who combines state of the art illusion with mind reading. Nathaniel Rankin has won numerous awards in European and American Festivals for this show –Borderline Madness.

Witty Look – charming duo from Japan who fuse unbelievable unicycle stunts with clowning to create a unique comic act.

Bubble Laboratory – Dr Air-in Bubble will take over the waterfront and fill the air with bubbles in this jaw-dropping display.
