The Museum of Pop Culture's annual Pop Conference, first held at MoPOP in 2002, mixes together ambitious music discourse of every kind to bring academics, critics, musicians, and dedicated fans into a collective conversation.
Pop Con 2020 was reimagined as an online conference held over three weeks this month, and to help close "Forever Young: Popular Music and Youth Across the Ages"—this year’s special virtual version of the event, Pop Con organizers are excited to present a keynote conversation featuring pop music phenomenon Dua Lipa.
In conversation with Jason King of New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Dua Lipa discusses the connections between pop music, youth, nostalgia, and activism.
