Detroit’s Mo Pop Festival is scheduled to return for its sixth year this summer, and the two-day music event plans on bringing Bon Iver, The National, Portugal. The Man and St. Vincent along for the ride. This year’s Mo Pop will provide music fans in the midwest with two full days of music from artists including Vince Staples, Brooklyn's hard rock heroes Highly Suspect, Brockhampton, Canada’s indie rock gems Alvvays, Daniel Caesar and many more when it returns to Detroit’s West Riverfront Park on July 28-29.
The annual mid-summer event returns to the shores of the Detroit River for its sixth year this July. The multi-day festival continues to grow with a total of 22 acts scheduled to rock out on its multiple stage setup within the generously sized community park. This year’s indie-friendly lineup also boasts a schedule of performances from Rex Orange County, Ireland’s Dermot Kennedy, jangle rock outfit Homeshake, ska-punk veteran Jeff Rosenstock and Clairo, the 19-year-old late-night-lofi online sensation.
One of the hidden gems also on this year’s lineup poster includes local kid and Detroit rapper, Curtis Roach, who just released a new single titled “Frida,” which Pitchfork recently acknowledged as “nostalgia for the 1990s.”
As JamBase reports, Bon Iver’s scheduled headlining appearance will be the band’s first show in the state of Michigan in a decade.
Detroit may or may not be everything that the famous KISS anthem makes it out to be, but it will surely be bumping all weekend during these two days in late July. Tickets and more general information about this year’s Mo Pop can be found by visiting the event’s official website.
