Mo Pop 2015 was one of the highlights of my summer last year. My favorite band, Modest Mouse, was headlining, and I bought pre-sale tickets as soon as I could. The festival was definitely one of the best events of the season for Detroit, and it looks like they’re at it again.
On July 23rd and 24th, Mo Pop music, arts, and food festival will take place along Detroit’s riverfront once again. It’s an amazing mix of great solo artists and bands that are sure to entertain music lovers of all sorts.
As a person who lives in Michigan, and a person who really likes music, things like Mo Pop festival are great for this area! Any reason to go and spend a few days in Detroit by the river, is always going to be awesome! And, that’s only amplified when you get to experience lots of amazing live music, good food from vendors or food trucks, check out some great art, and just enjoy the weather and company. If you aren’t someone who’s into Electric Forest, Movement, Faster Horses, or any of the other festivals Michigan is more “known for”, consider checking out Mo Pop this year!

Artists We Loved at SXSW 2018
Last year, Modest Mouse and Passion Pit were probably the two biggest headliners for the festival. I bought my tickets in advance so that I could finally see my favorite band, Modest Mouse, perform live, as well as to see The Front Bottoms and Wild Child. Passion Pit, sadly, dropped out of the show sort of last minute because of Michael Angelakos getting bronchitis or some other throat problem, which some of the other bands gladly poked fun at. Even though I only attended one of the two days last year, it was one of the best experiences of the summer. There’s something really cool about seeing these awesome bands play right on the river at sundown on a hot summer night. Check out a few photos from last year’s shows!
This year, big names like G-Eazy and M83 are bound to be crowd favorites, and should pull in a lot of people to the festival; but smaller artists like Mac DeMarco and FIDLAR are some of my very favorite artists that I’m really looking forward to seeing live! Groups like Glass Animals and Matt and Kim are some others that I’m pretty excited about seeing. Are there any artists on the setlist that you’re going to try to see? Mo Pop, and festivals like it, are also a really good way to expose yourself to new sounds and different styles of music. I think that’s one of the best parts of attending a festival like this. Since you’re there most of the day, you can meander around and check out all of the things going on. You get to make your own experience at Mo Pop, and with everything they offer, it’s bound to be a good one!
