Halifax Pop Explosion 2014, Initial Line-up Announced!

Just recently announced today, Halifax Pop Explosion’s inital acts for it’s 2014 line-up has been released, and the festival will be taking place between October 21st to the 25th.

This year’s HPX is looking very hip hop/rap, and dubstep heavy. With the successful show of Killer Mike last year, and the unexpected medical emergency of rapper, Action Bronson, the Halifax Pop Explosion team are definitely pulling all the stops. The line-up will be featuring Danny Brown, Ghostface Killah & Raekwon (from Wu-Tang Clan), Ill Gates, Thugli, Mike Boyd just to name a few.

Where does this leave the festival’s roots of indie-rock. Well they got you covered, with the return of Tokyo Police Club, Kevin Drew (from Broken Social Scene), PS I Love You, and Solids. And some fresh new faces to HPX line-up with Operators, Swearin‘, and Austra (yeah… pretty sweet eh).

Things are looking pretty sweet, but remember this is only the initial line-up, so there’s more to come!
