Halifax Pop Explosion Music Conference

The Conference for Artists and Their Teams

What They’re Saying:


“Halifax Pop Explosion opened my eyes to numerous Canadian Artists and introduced me to several industry professionals that not only led to new shows for me in Boston, but also welcomed new relationships for me within the business. I was fortunate enough to connect with several Agents and Managers who have emerging acts that are gaining serious traction in the States. I plan to return to HPX in hopes of furthering my knowledge of these rising artists for future bookings, as well as continue developing new industry relationships.”

— Dustin Labbe, Live Nation Boston

Our Focus


We bring artists and industry professionals together to get work done. Our focus is on quality networking opportunities between delegates and musicians.


As always, we plan to curate some of the best and most exciting bands from around the world. We want to set the bar high for musical showcases.


We bring together the most creative thinkers in the industry to deliver high quality educational and development opportunities for international artists, music entrepreneurs, and music industry students.

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.
