SWEET NEW POP FESTIVAL
  • SWEET NEW POP FESTIVAL

Today, Halifax's newest music weekend, GridLock Festival, announced a few of its bookings for the inaugural event from July 8 to 10, 2016. There's so much pop on this lineup, you'd think it's at Forum Bingo. For real, this looks so super sweet, with beer by Stillwell on the grounds of Citadel High. Way to go, Jeremy Macneil and company. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 18 at 10:00am ($90+HST for early birds, $100 advance, $120 day-of). This is some real real pop music, and it's going to rule. More bands and comics to come. Check this out now:
