Summer is here and that means one thing, It's going to be hot out. Okay maybe it means more than one thing, quite a few things actually. One of the things worth mentioning other than the heat is The Official Terrasse Launch Block Party which is taking over St-Dennis street on May 22-23rd.
Several streets, in the Quartier Latin area will be closed off so all the terrasses can take the spotlight and officially open to the public. There will also be a ton of activities including: Mini-Putt, rock climbing, organized games, live mural creation and several kiosques and live musical performances brought to you by the organizers of Osheaga.
It's sure to be a hell of a good time so don't miss out!

Starting on Friday, July 29, the Foo Fighters will blast your eardrums with their catchy, fist-pumping rock music. The band is sure to bring their classic hits along with tracks from their latest album, Medicine at Midnight. The band was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2021.
On Saturday, July 30, hip-hop megastar A$AP Rocky will bring his signature vibes to Montreal. While he hasn't released a new album since 2018, A$AP Rocky has managed to stay at the top of the charts and frequently lends his voice for feature spots.
Finally, on Sunday, July 31, pop goddess and one of the year's most-streamed artists, Dua Lipa, will cap it all off with her silky-smooth and polished pop sounds. Her 2020 album Future Nostalgia is still one of the most played and highest-ranking albums right now.
"We have been working on this edition for almost three years, we can't wait to finally be able to celebrate our 15th with all you music lovers," Osheaga Founder and evenko Senior Vice-President Nick Farkas said in a statement sent to MTL Blog.

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!"
