Montreal’s Pouzza Fest takes place this month from May 19-21, and we’re happy to count down to this festival with you, which is coming up quick. We will be chatting with a number of the Canadian lineup to get everyone ready for the big event! Dundas, ON based rock band, The Dirty Nil are up next and they are no strangers to Canadian Beats.
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
Hey this is Kyle from the Dirty Nil!
Pouzza Fest is in May, which is really the beginning of the summer festival season, how to prepare for the festival season?
As long as we have our instruments we are ready for festival season. We are also starting a tour with the Flatliners right after so we’ll have our bags packed and ready to go.
Have you taken part in Pouzza Fest before? If so, what is your favourite memory?
