Detroit is one of the most important music cities in the United States. The city is the birthplace of Motown and techno music, and it also play a big role in the popularization of hip-hop and rap. Despite its importance in music history, Detroit lacked an extremely successful music festival for many years. That is all about to change thanks to the maturation of Mo Pop Festival.
Mo Pop Festival started as a small one-day event in 2013, but it is quickly growing into one of the biggest music festivals in the United States. The creators of the festival just announced the lineup for this year’s event, and it is going to make a lot of music fans very happy.
Indie rock icons Bon Iver and The National are set to headline Mo Pop this year. Bon Iver rarely plays festivals, so it is major news every time he shows up on a lineup. In addition these great headliners, there are also several other high-profile acts on the lineup. These top artists include St. Vincent, Portugal. The Man, Vince Staples, Highly Suspect and Brockhampton.
The 2018 Mo Pop Festival will be held in Detroit’s West Waterfront Park on July 28 and 29. This beautiful 20-acre park is the perfect place to see some of the hottest acts in music. There will also be a lot to do at Mo Pop besides enjoying the great music. The festival grounds will have a Nerf gun course, craft bazaar, arcade and a large selection of Detroit’s best food trucks.
