Halifax Pop Explosion is an annual festival that presents over 150 artists, comedians and speakers in more than 15 venues across the city, with a large number of shows in the North End. 


Halifax Pop Explosion is like no other festival on the East Coast. For over 25 years, the festival has turned October into a city wide music take-over. For four days, music lovers come together and pack themselves into venues throughout the city, excited to listen to the newest and best in music. It's the "You should have been there!" moments. It's venue hopping all night with friends. It's pizza corner at 3am.

Most of all, it's discovering your next favourite band.
