Published Sep 04, 2013This year's Pop Montreal festival looks to be one of its biggest and most diverse yet. The annual shindig, which takes place at various venues between September 25 and 29, has got even bigger with more last-minute additions.
Along with sets from previously announced acts like The-Dream, Shuggie Otis and METZ (among many, many others), the organizers have added Kid Koala to the bill, who'll perform something that's being described as a "mysterious culinary musical storytelling adventure on wheels," as well as Miracle Fortress, Killer Mike and Moonface.
Other acts added to the fest include Plants and Animals, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Solar Year and Braids. There's also a speaking engagement from Nation of Ulysses/Make-Up/Chain and the Gang mastermind Ian Svenonius.
