Calling all indie lovers! Welcome to MOPOP Festival: The indie escape.

Beginning in 2013, Mopop (Motown Pop) showcases indie, pop, and hip hop. Although on the smaller size of festivals, it is very comparable to Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza. Located on Detroit’s riverfront right across from Canada, it’s a chill and vibey festival to enjoy some of your favorite artists. The headliners this year are incredible such as Glass Animals and Big Sean. Mopop 2022 also is featuring some up and coming artists like Tai Verdes, Dominic Fike, and Girl in Red. There’s something for everyone here. You can check out the full lineup here.

Welcome to the breezy, Mopop festival



Local Detroit Music Festival

Although Mopop originally started in Sterling Heights, Michigan, after two years it moved to Detroit, Michigan. Mopop prides itself on hosting local food and drink vendors and hosts many Detroit – based artists and vendors. Over the years Mopop has featured artists like Stef Chura, Heaters, and Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers. Local food/drinks include Slow Bars BBQ (one of my absolute favorites), hot dogs and tacos from Imperial, and cocktails from Sugar House. Mopop also offers ciders from Michigan’s own Blake’s Hard Ciders (they are delicious and have TONS of flavor).
