Hillside Festival 2019
July 12 - 14
The blueprint for Neon Dreams’ music is simple. “A well-told story, a beautiful melody and some emotional chords are what we aim for. The genre doesn’t matter to us as long as it makes people feel something,” explains frontman Frank Kadillac.
Since 2014, the Halifax duo (Kadillac, Adrian Morris) have followed those simple steps with cumulative success, including a win for Best New Group or Solo Artist at the 2017 Canadian Radio Music Awards, a performance at the Juno Awards, their own Warner Music-backed record label Dreaming Out Loud, and even a spot on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s summer Spotify playlist.
Known for their high-energy live performances and irresistible, radio-friendly bops, Neon Dreams first turned heads in 2016 with their gold-certified single, “Marching Bands.” Two EPs – 2016’s To You and last year’s Wolf, Princess & Me – followed, setting up the band’s anticipated debut full-length slated for early 2019.
