Honestly, Montreal is amazing; and although it's awesome all-year, it gets particularly special in the summer. The perfect combination of good weather, beautiful views, and super fun festivals makes it an ideal spot for anyone to come and spend some time at... And that includes celebrities.
If you're the type of person who does get excited at the prospect of famous people walking the exact same streets that you walk, then have I got some great news for you.
There's an influx of super talented celebrities in Montreal right now, mainly because of films, concerts, and festivals - and, if you're lucky enough, you just might get to spot one this weekend. Maybe chilling at your fave restaurant. Who knows? Anything is possible, friends. Anything.
Nick Kroll is in town for his Just For Laughs Festival play, "Oh, Hello," along with John Mulaney. He was recently spotted at Beautys, and I can't stop torturing myself wondering if he ordered the Beautys Special or not.
This super famous comedian is in town for his Just For Laughs special, LOL Live. He's also hosting a pitch panel in the city, cementing his status as an awesome comedian and an awesome person in general, IMO.
Aziz is in town for his Just For Laughs show, Master Of None. (Sidenote: My own personal life goal is to meet Aziz Ansari and thank him for changing my whole life with his Netfilx show of the same name).
Montreal's hottest music festival is right around the corner, and with headliners like Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the line-up for this year is crazier than ever.
If you haven't gotten tickets yet, you might want to act fast, since there are only General Admission single day passes left for sale on the official website. But don't panic, if you're feeling lucky, you could still score some day passes for FREE!
That's right, car2go is rolling out one of the freshest promos of the summer giving all Montrealers a chance to win a shiny day-pass to Osheaga on them.
And to enter, all you have to do is take a picture. There's a fresh batch of smart cars out there rolling around with Osheaga stickers on them, and if you happen to catch one, make sure to share a picture of it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #car2gOSHEAGA, and you just might be heading off to Osheaga for free! But hurry, because there are only 6 passes up or grabs and winners will be selected on July 25!
We all know getting round Montreal for the weekend can be a real pain sometimes, but it doesn't have to be. Sign up for car2go for free by using promo code OSHEAGA, and get a bonus 30 minutes. It's the luxury of owning your own vehicle for those rainy day shopping trips or getting out to explore the city with friends, you know, without all the hassle of owning your own car. And with no commitment, you don't ever pay unless you use it. Definitely beats taking the bus.

Which, of course, also means that Osheaga's single-day passes are now on sale as well.
Behold the daily lineup below, and if you're much more decisive than I am (I really don't want to choose between the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, and Disclosure, TBH), pick your fave day, get your pass, and have the time of your life.
