Win Butler, Justin Vernon and More to Compete in Celebrity Basketball Game


With the full Pop Montreal lineup having been announced today, everybody seems to be buzzing. Although the festival is primarily known for its eclectic musical lineup, it is also host to film screenings, conferences and a one of a kind Pop Vs. Jock showdown, which features celebrities competing against McGill University's Redmen basketball team. This year, the event has really stepped its game up, recruiting everyone from Martin Starr (the vagina-beard dude from Knocked Up), Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Arcade Fire's Win and Will Butler, The Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture and even the Spurs' Matt Bonner coaching.
