POP Montreal 2012 gears up for launch
Between 19th – 23rd September, POP Montréal will return to the city for the eleventh year running. For five days, Montréal will be playing host to one of the largest music and arts festivals in the world, with 2012 seeing over 600 acts performing including Grimes, Gotye, Ill Bill, Onyx, David Byrne, Tim Hecker and Grizzly Bear.
The annual not-for-profit curated cultural event champions independence in the arts by presenting emerging and celebrated artistic talents from around the world. This year the festival will include symposium discussions, artisan and visual art exhibitions, fashion shows and film screenings.
