Staff Writer

Two of Montreal's most popular summer festivals, Osheaga and Île Soniq have been postponed until 2022, according to the festivals' respective Instagram posts.

Both festivals are hosted by Evenko, which cancelled them "due to an ever-evolving COVID-19 situation."

Nick Farkas, Senior Vice President at Evenko said that "we want to be back there in the midst of it too, but the truth is it takes several months to line up the various elements to create a festival, and with the current uncertainty, we don't have that luxury." 

"We remain hopeful that the situation will improve enough."

Evelyne Côté, Director of Programming for Île Soniq added that festival-goers should "stay hopeful" for an "explosive" event in 2022.
