Mo Pop, which is set to take place on July 25 and 26, will see other changes, too. It's expanding to a two-day affair, making it more festival-like. There will also be more aspects to the festival than just music. This year they're adding a craft beer garden, a craft fair element, a food truck alley, and a tech tent.
This year's lineup is also quite impressive. Modest Mouse and Passion Pit will headline the festival. Chromeo, Iron & Wine with Ben Bridwell, The Killers' Brandon Flowers, King Tuff, Coasts, and many more are also on the bill. Detroit-based Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are also booked.
Tickets for Mo Pop go on sale April 10 at 10 a.m. A weekend pass is $99.
For its first two years, Mo Pop, an indie music festival, was held at Sterling Heights' outdoor amphitheater, Freedom Hill. But, today festival organizers made a big announcement. This year the music festival will move to West Riverside Park in Detroit.
