Osheaga has started releasing some of its 2019 artists!

On the first day of Spring, Montreal festival Osheaga had a few surprises in store for its fans!

The first announcement was more of a logistical one, about Osheaga’s homecoming to its native grounds of Parc Jean Drapeau, after two years of taking place on Île Saint-Hélène during renovations.

Now, we’ve packed our bags and are headed back home to our newly renovated ORIGINAL festival site on Parc Jean-Drapeau with everything you remember, know and love…only BETTER! ???⏰ Get ready. The real fun starts TOMORROW!
