POP Montreal is back September 13th to 17th, 2017 and it’s gonna be sweet! For their 16th edition, they are continuing the tradition of unexpected unknowns, epic throwbacks and best new jams. Below is a taste of what’s to come.

Highlights include the Canadian premieres of the iconic Afro Brazilian samba diva, Elza Soares, and Wu-Tang Clan master RZA, who will perform a live score of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. POP is also very excited to announce the return of the greatest rock band of all time Royal Trux; the man who graced the cover of Time Magazine, Riz Ahmed, with his amazing rap group Swet Shop Boys; the ultimate queen of groove, Deee-Lite’s Lady Miss Kier; the ultra catchy doo-wop folk band Hurray for the Riff Raff and the legendary Jamaican roots harmony trio Mighty Diamonds. 

Oh yeah, and let’s not forget about the thing that’s got the POP team jumping around the office, the #1 most exciting thing for real: the return of the sweetest of sweets, for their sweet 16. The best band to ever come out of the Montreal underground, THINK ABOUT LIFE!
