For real fans of real music.
POP Montreal is very pleased to make a second line-up announcement in anticipation for the upcoming #SWEET16 edition of the festival. Highlights include experimental Argentinian songwriter Juana Molina, the avant-garde composer William Basinski, darling of the electro-pop underground John Maus, and one of the most devastating live performers on earth, Moor Mother, all of whom will also appear in conversation as part of the POP Symposium. Some of the newer acts not to be missed include Dirty Beaches frontman Alex Zhang Hungtai's new project Love Theme, Polaris long lister and art pop warrior Lido Pimienta, as well Aba & Preach, the hilarious and phenomenal social commentators who have been keeping all of us Montrealers entertained and awake. Finally, hometown hero and LuckyMe recording artist Lunice will put on the party of the year and also partake in a special interactive beatmaking workshop that's guaranteed to leave the audience inspired
On the Art POP front, we're thrilled to be collaborating with the Never Apart art space to present G.R.O.S.S., an all-female multimedia group show featuring artists Tricia Middleton, Nadine Faraj, Rebecca Storm and Jana Sterbak. The exhibit opens July 13th and will run throughout the festival, reveling in the guck, ooze, rot, leaks, and stray hairs and exploring the balance between revulsion and attraction.
There are almost a hundred more names below so check the list and stay tuned for the full line-up in the second half of August. Start getting excited!
