IT’S HERE! We’re excited to unveil the first names of POP Montreal 2020. Now more than ever, it's important to bring music, art, and culture to our community in Montreal and beyond. This year, POP will be presented in a hybrid format, combining virtual and live events. It will be a very local edition of the festival, but nevertheless full of music, art, film, conversation, love and of course some surprises along the way!
Get excited for the mind-blowing metal rap of Backxwash, and the ecstatic electric cumbia of Lido Pimienta. Relax to the cinematic orchestral bliss of Flore Laurentienne, groove to the smooth voice of Clerel, or head bop to Land of Talk. Plants & Animals are making jazz to calm the mind, Socalled is rocking in the basement and the dark prophet of French folk-rock Antoine Corriveau is here to stay. Hop between Tyleen’s sexy rhymes and Thanya Iyer’s pizzicato jazz pop, and don’t miss the experimental pop of Paradis Artificiel. We’ll have more names for you soon!
Adding to our music showcases, our programming will also include Film POP, Art POP, POP Symposium and Puces POP—the five day hybrid event is sure to have something for everyone.
