Best Music Festival

Halifax Pop Explosion

Mix a little K’Naan with some Ted Leo, add some Japanther plus a dash of Kate & Anna McGarrigle and what do you get? According to you, the Best Local Music Festival! “We plan on doing more work to expand the festival to include other genres,” says Halifax Pop Explosion Talent Director Ben Pearlman. “Halifax has a ton of vibrant scenes and I think that HPX should do as much as possible to include those interests while still delivering the indie-rock goods.”

Runners-up: Atlantic Jazz Festival, Evolve
