Our cold brother to the North is known for a lot of things: winter, hockey, poutine. What Canada is NOT known for is music festivals, but Osheaga Festival may change that. Located in the Paris-meets-New York culture clash city of Montreal, the festival celebrates all that is the good in electronic, rock, and hip-hop music.
The three-day concert begins on Aug. 3 and will be held at Parc Jean Drapeau, the location of Montreal’s weekly Summer Sunday outdoor electronic music series, “Piknic Électronik.”
The festival will host headliners such as The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, Justice, Metric, Sigur Rós, Garbage, Common, and Florence + The Machine.
And when the festival is over, the craziness is just beginning! The city will be swarmed with afterparties, so get ready for a weekend of no sleep and dancing like crazy!
General admission tickets start at $85. Tickets are available here.
P.S. Come ready to mingle with groundhogs—they’re the unofficial mascot of the festival!
