UPDATE! David Bash just sent me the detailed line-up for both Boston and New York so here you go if you are not able for some reason to check out the official IPO site:


Thousands of fans from around the U.S. and the world will converge on the East Coast of the United States this fall as International Pop Overthrow heads to Boston and New York. The festival will feature more than 120 of the best pop artists from all around the world. International Pop Overthrow has had nine successful years in Los Angeles five successful years in New York, and Chicago and four successful years in Boston, and IPO East Coast will come on the heels of the festival’s fourth appearance in Liverpool, England (with all shows held at the world famous Cavern Club), as well as our first appearances in Seattle and Vancouver, Canada!
