Best Music Festival 

Halifax Pop Explosion

There’s no scientific reason why Halifax Pop Explosion always wins for best festival. Perhaps the answer’s found in the sweat spray from all the dancers loving up the Zoobombs at the Seahorse. Or maybe in the hoarse voices of Eric’s Trip fans singing along at their reunion show. Or you could count up the number of sick calls the day after Brother Ali kept everyone up late at The Attic. Can’t say, really, but the fine folks at HPX are happy you keep coming back. “This is a great way to cap off our 15th anniversary year,” says festival director Waye Mason. “The staff and hundreds of volunteers work their asses off to make HPX the best week of music in Halifax every year and we all appreciate the confidence and support the readers have shown us. We look forward to exceeding your expectations yet again in 2008!”
