Experience Live Music Discovery
HPX has always been a festival of exploration — this year, that might be truer than ever. Our 2018 lineup features artists from 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.
We would like to acknowledge that the festival takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
