  • Hey Rosetta! is this year's headliner.

In just a few short months, when the humidity has broken, the fall wind will ring with the sound of rowdy concert goers: leaves will crunch beneath their Converse as they prance to the next show, revelling in the joy that is Halifax Pop Explosion.

The beloved fest just announced its second round of 2016 acts this morning—fans, hold onto your fanny packs, and get ready.

Over 50 new acts are slated to grace our stages in October, including Hey Rosetta!, Keys N Krates, Charles Bradley, Grandtheft, PUP, Basia Bulat, Holy Fuck, TUNS and Voivod.

You won’t be starved for local talent, either, with acts like Reeny Smith, Century Egg, Old and Weird, Crossed Wires, Beauts, Mo Kenny with Symphony NS and Nap Eyes lined up.

Early bird passes are on sale now for $89—get ‘em while they last. Prices will jump to $109, and eventually reach $129 over the coming months.

The festival runs from October 19-22, at various city-wide locations.
