Two weeks after announcing a very exciting hybrid concept for their 2020 edition, POP Montreal released today new additions to the lineup! New acts include Polaris Music Prize winner Jeremy Dutcher, musician and visual artist Kimmortal, producer / composer Yves Jarvis and many more!
This year’s edition will be adapted to ensure the safety of attendees and adhere to all COVID-19 restrictions. Shows will have very limited capacity, with advance ticket sales and seating room only.
All events will be accessible online via the POP Montreal stream “Funhouse 2.0” for at home viewing. Digital viewers can experience the festival via popmontreal.com, which will allow attendees to wander through a virtual 2D rendering of the Rialto Theatre complex, with access to live-streamed concerts, and other panels and performances, as well as an art gallery, and more. Dedicated to providing Montreal and the international music community with stellar programming, the festival promises special surprise events in line with previous years that incorporate the community and backdrop of the city. Each secret show venue will be revealed at the last minute to ticket holders. Full list of programming is available here.
POP Montreal International Music Festival is an annual non-profit curated cultural event that champions independence in the arts by presenting emerging and celebrated artistic talents from around the world. Launched by friends and colleagues in 2002 from the collective impulse to create a meaningful and vibrant cultural festival, POP Montreal is now entering its 19th year as a permanent fixture on the international music circuit and the Montreal festival map.
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
