The food and drink lineup for one of Detroit’s biggest events of the summer, the Mo Pop Festival, is finally here. Organizers confirmed today that some of the region’s most popular pop-ups, restaurants, and food trucks will be setting up shop at West Riverfront Park on July 27 and July 28 to feed attendees.

The music festival is kicking off its seventh year with featured performances from artists like Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, Noname, and Detroit-born singer Lizzo. Mo Pop is also introducing its largest collection of food and beverage options yet. Visitors can expect 20 different food trucks including Hero or Villain, Nosh Pit, and Chicken Coupe as well as appearances from crowd-inducing pop-up outfit Street Beet’s vegan Taco Hell and Ferndale’s Public House. Mo Pop is also partnering with Populace Coffee on a special 2019 blend and with Goose Island on a 2019 Festipale Ale.

Street Beet will be giving away a ticket to the festival tonight during its one year anniversary Taco Hell pop-up at PJ’s Lager House. Expect long lines. Tickets for Mo Pop are sold on a sliding scale. They’re currently priced at $85 for individual days and $129.50 for a weekend pass. Children 12 and under get in for free with an adult pass.
