POP Montreal announces first wave of performers with SOPHIE, Wanda Jackson, The Proclaimers

International music and arts festival POP Montreal is gearing up for its seventeenth year of programming, set to take over the city September 26th-30th.

POP Montreal was launched in 2002 with the intent to highlight independence in the arts. As a result, the festival is filled with diverse programming. POP offers a wide range of emerging artists, of-the-moment talent and industry greats. The massive five day festival has announced their first wave of performers, which include notable talent such as electronic pop act SOPHIE, Scottish alt-rock royalty The Proclaimers, rockabilly pioneer Wanda Jackson, Blitzen Trapper, and Leif Vollebekk. 

SXSW darlings and electronic folk-pop duo Saint Sister are set to make their Canadian debut. An intriguing collaboration between avant-garde electronic maverick Venetian Snares and U2 producer Daniel Lanois is also on the bill. The non-profit, artist-centric festival will host a variety of other arts programming including: Film POP, Art POP, POP Symposium, Puces POP, and Kids POP. 

Passes are now available for purchase via the POP Montreal website
