Starting in 2006 and still going strong, Osheaga Music Festival is quickly rising to the top of the music festival ranks, so high that now it's at the top.
These three-day long music festivals attract hundreds of thousands of music-lovers from North America and even Europe. People are flying from far off destinations to come to Montreal and see the festival in action.
Osheaga has given itself the objective of discovering local and national emerging talent offering them the opportunity to play alongside some of the biggest international artists in the business including Coldplay, The Killers, Iggy & The Stooges, Sonic Youth, The Roots, Rufus Wainwright, Arcade Fire, Weezer, and Eminem.
Last year's Osheaga festival was very special because Osheaga Music and Arts Festival won the award for “Best Major Festival of the Year” which was officially announced his past weekend, at the Live Music Industry Awards.
As part of Canadian Music Week - Canada’s annual entertainment event dedicated to the expression and growth of the country’s music, media and entertainment industries.
The team behind Osheaga is extremely humbled by this award. Executing a festival of this scale is no small feat and the Osheaga team works very hard to make this festival come to life.
