Mo Pop Brings Matt & Kim, Shakey Graves, Fidlar and More to Detroit

It's summer in the city which means one thing, festivals!!!! Movement has come and gone and Dirt Fest is still  a few weeks away, but Mo Pop is right around the corner!

Mo Pop is a 2 day festival in the heart of Detroit that has a killer musical lineup, a great lineup of food choices, and a bunch of really cool shops and activities to try throughout the day! First, we can talk about the music. Then we can talk about the food, and finally will talk about all the random fun that you can get into at the festival.

This year's festival will feature two stages, the Fender Stage and The Grande stage. Saturday, the Fender Stage will feature Tunde Olaniran, Quilt, Coast Modern, Twin Peaks, Borns, and Haim. The Grande stage will feature Panama Wedding, Bishop Briggs, Fidlar, Glass Animals and G-Eaxy.
