Since its inception in 2006 the Osheaga music festival has grown in stature and attendance. Beginning with smaller but encouraging numbers attending the three day festival that takes place in the lovely confines of Parc Jean Drapeau it has gotten more popular with over 135,000 attending in 2016.
The festival is all about music and visual arts. It gives music fans the opportunity to discover up and coming bands as well as revel in the well-knowns. There are six stages and as such music will be happening continuously all day long.
Over the course of the three days you can hear sets by the likes of De La Soul, Lykki Li, Anderson.Paak & the Free Nationals, Portugal.the Man, Lights, Dua Lipa, Arctic Monkeys, Billie Eilish, Blondie, Chromeo, Franz Ferdinand, Florence + the Machine, James Bay, Khalid, Lauv, Modeselektor, Post Malone, St. Vincent, Tash Sultana, The National, Travis Scott, Tyler, the Creator, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, and a ton of other bands/acts.
Besides the great music there are other things to do at Osheaga. There is a Coors Light Wi-Fi Chill Zone where you can relax and sign into social media or get a fresh cut at the Monster Energy Barber Shop or take a photo at the Oikos Selfie Factory or the Little Burgundy Shoe Booth.
