As amazing as Igloofest was this year, everyone knows Montreal is all about its summer festivals, and Osheaga is undoubtedly the biggest one on everyone's mind. The massive 3-day outdoor music festival is finally coming back to Parc Jean-Drapeau on July 31, August 1 and 2 to host over 100 local and international bands that will most definitely rock our faces off.
While we not so patiently wait for the full line-up to be revealed this March, Osheaga released a little taste of what's to come by teasing us with the 10 acts slated to hit the stage this summer.
Most notably, Montreal's favourite Belgium singer-songwriter, Stromae is sure to make us all danse, American rock band Interpol hot off their latest album El Pintor, and the always soulful Avett Brothers.
Hip hop duo Run the Jewels will be joining Norwegian DJ Kygo for what's sure to be hype as all fvck, as well ScHoolboy Q and Marina and the Diamonds will be making us sway and groove with the best of them.
Also joining the party is Dan Snaith, who will perform once as his full band of Carribou as well as a DJ set as Daphni, and Milky Chance and Father John Misty round out the list.
Still no news regarding headliners and festival passes only go on sale March 24, but Osheaga is promising a "BIG surprise to help us discover the rest of the lineup" so be sure to watch this space as we will keep you posted as soon as we have more details.
Roll on summer!
