News:: More M Fest!

mFest

Ok, so if you’ve been paying attention here at the hill or anywhere else that is vaguely concerned with the musical goings on here in Halifax, you know that the inaugural M Fest is going down this August in Dartmouth landing Alderney Landing. It takes place Sunday, August 7th, and the full lineup was released yesterday:

Broken Social Scene
Hey Rosetta!
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Surfer Blood
Diamond Rings
In-Flight Safety
Carmen Townsend
Glory Glory

For those keeping score at home, that’s a full doubling of the musical goodness on offer, with east coasters Hey Rosetta!, In-Flight Safety, Carmen Townsend, and Glory Glory (formerly Glory Glory Man United) being added to the bill. Eight acts featuring a mix of interesting names acts from away, and some excellent talent from our own backyard, all for 40-some bucks? Sounds like a winner to me, so once again, kudos to HPX and Live 105 for making it happen. Here’s the ticket information from the HPX site so you can do the deed:

 

Tickets are available now through Ticketpro.ca, their outlets, and by phone at 1-888-311-9090. Advanced Tickets are $39.50 (+ $5 ticket service fee) and day of show tickets are $44.50 (+ $5 ticket service fee).
