Artists 2018

Latest Addition:


Experience Live Music Discovery

HPX has always been a festival of exploration — this year, that might be truer than ever. Our first ten artists are a mix of genres and backgrounds; some are up-and-coming, while others have been on the scene for a while; some you may have seen before, and others are coming to Canada's East Coast for the very first time. But, there’s one thing all of these artists have in common: they’re making waves in their genres. We love what they’re doing, and we think you will too.

If you’re a live music fan, this highly curated, city-wide music takeover is for you.


Presented by Kobalt, the 2018 Halifax Pop Explosion Conference is dedicated to bringing together industry professionals, artists, and fans from around the world to discuss current trends, topics, and issues in the music industry. This year, the overarching themes will centre around the Future of the Industry and Accessibility in Music.

The Conference will take place October 17 - 20 at Halifax Central Library.
