MAN IT IS HOT. SUMMER IS SOOOOOO HOT. We can’t wait for the cool breeze of September. We can’t wait for POP.
Here are some more flashy names to add to the list of super high-calibre artists playing the festival. Grimes and Purity Ring, both breakout sensations of POP 2011, are back, woohoo! Local label Fixture Records will bring us a great line-up of underground gems highlighted by Chevalier Avant Garde. Printemps érable heroes Avec pas d’casque will play an intimate show on the breathtaking Ubisoft Rooftop. The dreamy pop perfection of Captured Tracks’ artist Wild Nothing play at Il Motore, and local hip hop pranksters Alaclair Ensemble will headline at Sala Rossa. We also welcome back Canadian musical trailblazer Ian Blurton as he reforms the seminal genre-defying rock band Change of Heart. Finally, the incomparable, unforgettable and incredibly sexy Arthur H. will also join the party.
