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.
Two years ago, we hit the road and embarked on a journey to a explore a new island, new stages, and a new experience. 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!

Last but not least, Osheaga has launched a little interactive game on its website to give its fans a little sneak peek at the full lineup! The experience features 6 beautiful postcards designed by some amazing illustrators! The game? Each day, email the postcards to some of your friends, and find out 6 new artists from the lineup!

Osheaga 2019 will take place in Montreal August 2nd – 4th. Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday at noon. In the meantime, Diamond passes are already available on the festival’s website.
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, and moved to Montreal about 5 years ago. I am an account manager at a digital marketing agency by day, and an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
