Halifax Is Burning :: S03E14
Finally! A large-scale concert to get excited about here in Halifax. On Monday, the Halifax Pop Explosion announced M Fest, a good old fashioned summer bash happening at Alderney Landing.
As you can see from the poster above, the line-up - though only four acts have been confirmed - is stacked. Broken Social Scene, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Surfer Blood and Diamond Rings will all grace the Dartmouth waterfront on Sunday, August 7, 2011.
On this week's program, I caught up with Jonny Stevens, the Executive Director of the Halifax Pop Explosion, to talk about how M Fest was developed, and what else we can expect from this pretty rad one-day festival.
Check it out:
