NEW Experiences have been added to Mo Pop Festival 2016!

PABST 1844 VIP LOUNGE and More! –

The Pabst Crewing Company is once again thrilled to announce their partnership with Mo Pop Festival.  Pabst and live music go hand in hand and we hope you enjoy the experiences we are bringing back for 2016.  Grab a PBR at any of the bar locations at the festival, or try our craft variety: Old Tanker Ale served the VIP Lounge and Bier Garten.  We look forward to seeing you in Detroit, cheers!

In addition to the Pabst 1844 VIP Lounge, don’t forget to take your turn at vandalizing the Pabst Van.  Pabst VANdalism is an ongoing mobile art experiment touring the country’s premier music festivals.  Stop by, grab some spray paint, and leave your mark on Mo Pop.  And, new to Mo Pop this year is Pabst Wax, a mobile recording studio that allows you to jump inside the recording booth and lay down a song, scream or whatever inspires you.  Pabst Wax will then cut it directly onto a vinyl for festival-goers to take home as a one-of-a-kind souvenir.


The School of Rock All-Stars are the best of the best, representing less than 1% of their total 23K students across the nation!  The AllStars have toured the country every summer since 2006 and will be playing multiple sets each day of Mo Pop 2016!  School of Rock students have gone on to land high-profile positions across the television and music industries – including Broadway’s, “School of Rock” and the iconic show, “American Idol”.  This is a chance for music fans to catch the next generation of great musicians perform some of music’s most iconic songs on stage. To encourage younger fans to pursue their musical dreams, School of Rock is offering free admission to children ages 12 and younger.  Bring them by the School of Rock stage and instill a love of music in them early!


get an up-close and personal experience with music at the Heritage Guitars Music Experience brought to you by School of Rock.  Come show off your skills, or get introduced to a new instrument for the very first time!  We encourage visitors to take full advantage of this interactive experience – explore, learn, and make some noise.

Experience a real-life #throwbackthursday in the Credit Karma Arcade at Mo Pop!  Credit Karma has teamed up with local Detroit arcade “Off-World Arcade” to build an air conditioned tent filled with all your favorite classic arcade games, prizes, drinks and a DJ playing beats between bands. Come reminisce and enjoy the free game play!
