About Pouzza Fest:
Behind Pouzza Fest, there’s seven people. The group is composed of major players in the indie music industry, musicians and enthusiasts, fronted by veteran Hugo Mudie, creator of Pouzza and its edible homonym. Their first goal was to put forward a festival that was of international caliber, inclusive, incorporating activities for all and giving an indispensable showcase to a musical style outside of standards. A true Montreal-based alternative to the city’s mainstream music events that punctuates the metropolis once its streets are bathed in the summer sun, endowed with a sense of community proper to the punk scene.
