Mo Pop Festival Staff Pick

When: Sat., July 27, 1 p.m. and Sun., July 28, 1 p.m. 2019
Price: $95+
Take a seat, Coachella. Step aside, Lollapalooza. Go to sleep, Woodstock 50. (Too soon?) Detroit’s laid-back Mo Pop Festival returns to kick major festival ass, thanks to a bootylicious Detroit-born superstar, some ambient space-rock from Down Under, vampiric hitmakers, and a Colombian-American neo-soul songstress. Once again, Mo Pop will take over Detroit’s West Riverfront Park Saturday, July 27 and Sunday July 28 with a sprawling music wonderland featuring some of music’s top names and emerging local acts. Last year, Spin hailed Mo Pop as one of its favorite music festivals due to its accessibility and its always diverse lineup. Last year, Bon Iver, Billie Eilish, the National, and St. Vincent took to the Mo Pop stages and in years past, the festival has hosted performances by Solange, Father John Misty, Modest Mouse, and Run the Jewels. One of the hallmarks of the festival, now six years running, is Mo Pop’s two stages, where set-times never overlap so you can twerk with Lizzo and debate the “Oxford Comma” with Vampire Weekend. At Mo Pop, never will you have to choose. (Thank gawd.) Among this year’s performers are headliners Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend, as well as Kali Uchis, Snail Mail, Ella Mai, Caamp, Craig Brown Band, King Princess, Whitney, and more.
