Like a refrigerator or a pair of washer-dryers purchased at a retailer, you can purchase your Osheaga 2021 passes in four equal payments. But, be aware that tickets are more expensive than we're used to.
Osheaga, one of Montreal's most popular summer festivals, recently announced this new feature on social networks.
Payment plans are available for purchases of $325 or more, with no interest and no fees.
As things slowly begin to get back to normal, experiences we missed out on last year are coming back into action. Like Osheaga, which took place during the weekend of October 1 to 3, 2021.
The popular Montreal festival didn't look quite the same as in years past, though. Vaccine passports were required to enter the site and a one-metre distance between festival-goers was enforced.
To ensure proper physical distancing, the site was separated into "private docks" that could fit 500 people inside each section.
But, all these new regulations didn't stop people from having a good time. Nelly Serandour-Amar, an employee at MTL Blog, described her experience by saying, "This was my first concert since the beginning of the pandemic and even though it's not your 'typical' Osheaga, being back in a festival felt so nice. You could feel the energy from the musicians and the crowd which was so contagious. The overall festival felt very safe with it being a fully-vaccinated environment!"

If you missed ÎleSoniq this past weekend and are still hoping to experience a live outdoor music festival before the cold weather hits, you're in luck. After having to cancel last year, Osheaga is finally happening again from October 1 to 3, 2021.
