The Osheaga 2020 Lineup Was Released After It Apparently Leaked
  • The Osheaga 2020 lineup is now live on the festival website and Instagram page.
  • The lineup apparently began appearing prematurely in posters around the city.
  • The news comes just hours after the announcement of the three headliners.

After the exciting announcement confirming the Osheaga 2020 headliners, a photo surfaced online appearing to display the complete festival line-up. Reddit user ADHDDAL shared the image to r/Osheaga alongside the caption "Osheaga 2020 apparently leaked." In response, festival organizers have released the complete line-up, confirming the validity of the photo.

The poster depicting the line-up apparently appeared prematurely in a street advertisement in the Gay Village, one day before the planned release, according to the Facebook event page for the 2020 edition.

The line-up is now live on the Osheaga website. It also appears in an Instagram post to its official account.

"Got leaked so you released it early lol," commented one Instagram user under the post.

"We just wanted to be part of the fun 😉," replied Osheaga.

Vampire Weekend, French Montana, Tove Lo, Bon Iver, Of Monsters And Men, and Charli XCX, among dozens of others, will officially join the likes of the Foo Fighters, Lizzo, and Kendrick Lamar when the world-famous music festival returns to Parc Jean-Drapeau this summer.

See the complete line-up below.

This will be the first edition of Osheaga in the new Espace 67, a dedicated festival space near the Jean-Drapeau station on Île Sainte-Hélène.

The grounds, named in honour of Expo 67, arguably the event that made Montreal the festival city it is today, includes an information centre, a restaurant, and new bathroom facilities.

Espace 67 will also better facilitate the festival experience.

"The widening of the concourse will allow people to move around easier, once they come out of the subway exit," according to the Parc Jean-Drapeau website.

"With 200 places for seating strategically set up close to the cooling zones and the planting tanks, along with uncluttered spaces for crowd management during major events, the central concourse will allow you to enjoy the site year-round."

Passes will go on sale January 28. Prospective festival-goers should keep an eye on the Osheaga website and Facebook event page for forthcoming details.
