Halifax Pop Explosion 2014

HPX is the Halifax Pop Explosion, an international music festival and conference that presents 200 bands in 20 venues over 5­ days to over 30,000 fans and industry delegates from around the world.


The first Halifax Pop Explosion was held in September 1993 and was the brainchild of Halifax music impresario Peter Rowan and legendary Halifax promoter Greg Clark. Greg bowed out after the first year to focus on the Birdland Cabaret, and the festival continued to grow with the assistance of artist manager Angie Fenwick, and later with the help of Shelly McPhail. This internationally acclaimed festival drew accolades in Halifax, Canada and around the world.

Circumstances dictated that the festival be re­launched in 1996 as Halifax On Music. The festival operated for a further four years, improving on the concept, and drawing further national and international interest. The festival became a pivotal event on the east coast and a centerpiece and celebration for the music community in Halifax and the Maritimes.
