Halifax Pop Explosion executive director Jonny Stevens is quick to give congrats to those he says really make the festival, which last year brought The Black Lips, Purity Ring and Eugene Mirman to town. “Halifax Pop Explosion belongs to the fans, bands, volunteers and venues who make it really happen,” says Stevens. “Those fans who give us suggestions year-round and fill the venues, the musicians who create great music to fill our stages, the venues who operate for the love of music, the volunteers who give so freely of their time and expect little in return, the partners who help make it happen and Halifax for filling our hearts with optimism.” So really, you should be giving yourself a pat on the back for this win.
