Whether its your first time or your twelfth time visiting one of the biggest indie music festivals in Canada, there are always new rules and regulations as well as some new information that you need to know.
Montreal music fans rejoice because your favourite festival, Osheaga, is coming back this fall. But it'll be a mini version of the festival you all know and love.
The Osheaga "Get Together" is a mini-festival that will feature three days of music with some of the brightest Canadian talent out there.
Charlotte Cardin, Jessie Reyez, and Half Moon Run will headline a three-day celebration of up-and-coming local music for the adoring ears of a limited number of fans in an "intimate outdoor setting," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The festival starts on October 1 with Quebec-born indie-pop darling Charlotte Cardin, who has quickly risen to the top of the charts with her new album Phoenix.
On the following day, the Toronto-born and multi-Juno award winner Jessie Reyez will light up centre stage with her delightful RnB pop sounds.
And finally, on October 3, Half Moon Run, Montreal's super talented indie rock idols, will headline the closing night of the festival.
"We are thrilled about this announcement, because we promised fans that we would do everything in our power to get them to Parc Jean-Drapeau to be united by live music again as soon as possible, and we are going to make that happen!" said Nick Farkas, Senior Vice President, Booking, Concerts and Events at evenko and founder of Osheaga.
Single-day and three-day passes will go on sale Friday, July 23 at noon on Osheaga's website.
Tickets start at $85 for a single day and $245 for a three-day pass.
Mayor Valérie Plante announced Thursday that Montreal will host free screenings of the Stanley Cup Final with the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Quartier des Spectacles beginning with Game 3 on Friday, July 2.
"For several days now, we have been working hard to find solutions to offer Montrealers places to gather, while respecting the health measures in force in order to watch the matches of the Montreal Canadiens for free," the mayor said in a press release.
"In a united and unifying spirit, and in a safe environment that respects public health rules, the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership is very excited to be able to offer a free series of public screenings of the matches of the Stanley Cup Final," Monique Simard, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, added.
She suggested the games would be projected at the Place des Festivals.
Despite the government's rejection of the Habs' request to have more fans inside the Bell Centre, fans will be happy to know that they'll finally have a safe public viewing spot.
The full details regarding the screenings and gathering rules will be announced at a later time, the City said.
