FESTIVAL: POP Montreal Announces First Wave of Artists


From September 21st to the 25th, over 450 acts from all over the world will make their way to Montreal to take part in the 2016 edition of POP Montreal. The popular cultural festival, which brings together artists ranging from filmmakers to authors to singer-songwriters, has been named “a city-wide entertainment experience not to be missed” by Tourisme Montreal.

This year’s edition is shaping up quite nicely as the first wave of participating artists include indie-rock band The Kills, trumpet genius Ibrahim Maalouf, filmmaker John Waters, indie-folk songstress Angel Olsen and Montreal’s own Groenland.
