As a pretty big festival fan, I became aware of Mo Pop music festival last year in 2019 when their lineup totally knocked it out of the park (Lizzo, Tame Impala, AND Vampire Weekend?! Okay, I’m in.) Since then, I’ve been anxiously waiting for their 2020 lineup to drop to see if they could deliver for a second year in a row, and luckily for me, today was the lucky day!
I woke up and checked Instagram this morning to see a killer lineup that has me wishing it was summer already. Khalid and The 1975 are headlining, with supporting up-and-coming acts Doja Cat, Orville Peck, Still Woozy, Hippo Campus, and many more.
I’m super excited because I love checking out new festivals, and this one looks like it can live up to the hype. The website boasts an area called The Shipyard that offers a variety of local Detroit dishes, an arcade, a craft beer area, food trucks, dance parties, a pop-up flea market, and a bicycle valet. There’s lots of personality and fun at Mo Pop, and I can’t wait to see it for myself!
Mo Pop is in Detroit, Michigan on July 25 + 26, 2020. It was first held in 2015 and focuses on indy-rock, pop, and hip hop music. You can check out the full lineup poster below, and head over to https://mopopfestival.com/ for ticket information and to learn more.
