Osheaga has been teasing their lineup in the days leading up to today's reveal. The online, interractive "game" released 6 acts per day until the full lineup was revealed today, March 26, at noon. Tickets are also now on sale.
The major news is the announcement of the three headliners: Childish Gambino, The Lumineers, and The Chemical Brothers. The headliners are representative of this year's lineup more generally, which is a very eclectic mix of artists and genres. We also now know that the three-day passes are on sale for $325. Day passes are usually only released closer to the date of the event.
TL;DR Osheaga just dropped their full lineup. This year's set includes Childish Gambino, The Lumineers, and The Chemical Brothers. The announcement of the lineup has me really excited for a summer of sun, fun, and festivals.
Earlier today it was announced that Childish Gambino would headline Sunday night. The singer and actor has not performed at the festival in over four years. We also knew from previous announcements that artists like Tame Impala and City and Colour would be joining the festival lineup.
The Lumineers were at Osheaga in 2016, and fans will be very happy to have them back again. They have released singles recently, but a new album does not appear to be in the works.
Other noteworthy artists that were just announced include Janelle Monae, Mitski and Kaytranada.
Three-day passes are now on sale for $325. The price of the passes will increase as we get closer to the festival date. The 3-day platinum tickets are also available, for the hefty price of $1,150.
This year's festival will once again be taking place at the Jean-Drapeau site close to the metro station. The Osheaga site had been moved for the last two years while renovations were ongoing. The new site is apparently more spacious and comfortable than ever before, and has a host of new features.
