Introducing Osheaga

Montreal is the city of festivals. From the world renowned Jazz Fest and Just for Laughs comedy festival to the Francofolies and the Fringe Festival, it seems that not a weekend goes by during the summer when there isn’t a festival livening things up. Well get ready for the newest festival to hit the stage. Osheaga is an impressive music and arts festival with a definite indie bent. Scheduled to take place during the labour day weekend on Parc Jean Drapeau, the former site of Expo 67, Osheaga has already confirmed an impressive first year line up. Already confirmed are: Ben Harper, Sonic Youth, Damian Marley, Wolf Parade, K-OS, Dinosaur Jr., Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, Malajube, Lady Sovereign, the Stills, Joseph Arthur, Islands, Dobacaracol, Starsailor and Bell Orchestre with more to come. Early bird tickets cost $80.00 and go on sale this weekend. More information can be found at
