The Halifax Pop Explosion is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and we’re excited to be part of the action! On October 16th through 20th some of the coolest musical acts to hit the Maritimes come together for four awesome days in Halifax.
Why it’s cool
First, because there’s different ways to buy passes, including early bird pricing (that has already sold out), passes, wristbands, and singular event tickets.
Second, because the festival isn’t just about seeing live music in one place – it’s literally ALL over town at some of the most unique venues that our city has to offer.
Third, because the bands and musicians that perform for the Pop Explosion are true artists. They are talented songwriters and performers (like a personal favourite, Wintersleep) who have great followings in Canada and beyond – and they deserve it.
And last because it’s not just a music festival, it’s a conference. Take advantage of the opportunity to attend workshops and talks on industry topics!
Get connected at the Explosion
The Pop Explosion offers an interactive app for your iPhone or Android, making it easy to plan your schedule over the four days, view the lineups, and read more about artists. That’s pretty sweet!
You may be wondering why we’re so interested in the Pop Explosion this year. We’ve always supported this event as one of the many reasons to visit Halifax in October – but this year in particular we are happy to announce that we’re the new host hotel for the event! What does that mean? It means there are a ton of cool things happening at our property, and if you’re headed this way for the event, you can get a sweet room deal. More details here.
We’ll see you in October!
