Ahhhhh, the complete sandwhich. The complete line up for POP Montreal 2022 is here! The festival is just weeks away, and it’s time to get excited, plan your schedules, and also remember what we’ve learned over the last couple of years. The notion of “going back to normal” isn’t really POP Montreal’s jam. We will forever be moving forward, doing our best to care of our community and create spaces that allow for all kinds of voices to come together.
One of the lessons we’ve learned over the “panini” is that being in relation with each other is the essential ingredient of culture. So let’s come together and experience the most delicious musical sandwich the city can offer. We’re thrilled to fill in the festival palette with all kinds of awesome gems. Adding to the previously announced festival headliners (including Allison Russell, Tortoise, The Linda Lindas, Cymande, Wayne Snow, Lydia Képinski, Martha Wainwright, Haru Nemuri) we are pleased to announce over 100 more artists who will be performing at the festival this year. There will be tons of new discoveries and familiar faces including the visionary electro pop boss Tess Roby, post pow wow experimentalist Joe Rainey, Latinx pop princess Isabella Lovestory, Toronto’s rap maverick Witch Prophet, Indigenous futurists and Polaris shortlist favourites Ombiigizi, Montreal’s post classical icon’s Esmerine, the catchy catchiness of hitmaker maxime., the electric punk pop songstress Sophia Bel and lots, lots more (+ a few surprises!!!) !!!
