Halifax M Fest

Mark it down on your calendars, in your iphones and your blackberries... Halifax Pop Explosion (HPX) has created a new off shoot festival they named Halifax M Fest and it’s happening on Sunday August 7th at Alderney Landing on the Dartmouth Waterfront. Yes, the Library parking lot! So far it’s only a one day event with doors opening at 1PM. It’s described as all ages with a licensed area... sooo a BEER TENT (I’m assuming).

Oh I forgot the best part... Headliners: Broken Social Scene!

Yay! If you’ve never seen them (thought they’ve been to Halifax a few times) you need to catch their show. They are amazing live. Youtube has plenty of vids from live shows so you can check 'em out. Their live performance list includes appearances on Letterman, Jimmy Fallon and CBC’s Q.

The other bands listed thus far include....

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists (I love this video!)

Surfer Blood

Diamond Rings (he doesn't have a working website)

Advanced Tickets are $39.50 and can be purchased at Alderney Landing Box Office, online at, by phone at 1-888-311-9090 or any of their ticket outlets which are also listed on their website. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $44.50. oh and of course there is always a $5 service fee added to each ticket as well....

Hope To See You There!!
