It is with a heavy heart that the OSHEAGA team announced today that they will postpone the long-awaited 15th edition of the festival, to next summer, July 30, 31 and August 1st, 2021, at parc Jean-Drapeau.
It is paramount for the OSHEAGA team to provide a world-class festival experience for all fans, and given the current circumstances, it would not be responsible for the artists, the fans, the partners, and employees to hold the festival this year. The festival is currently working on the 2021 lineup to bring back some of the much-anticipated 2020 acts. More news to come!
Nick Farkas, Senior Vice President, Booking, Concerts and Events at evenko explains:
“This is an unusual situation that is unfortunately beyond our control. But as passionate music fans ourselves, we take great pride in curating the festival with the aim of bringing the best local, Canadian and international talent to the most beautiful festival site in the world, and we’ll have some fantastic artists lined up for 2021.”
Fans who have already purchased their OSHEAGA 2020 passes are invited to hold onto them. Passholders for OSHEAGA 2020 be entitled to a gift card valued up to $50 to use on site during the 2021 edition of the festival, more details can be found here.
For those who would prefer to get a refund, they are invited to request it before June 23nd, so that their purchase can be refunded as soon as possible. As this is an unprecedented situation for our industry, delays could be expected, and the team appreciates the understanding of the OSHEAGA fans.
The OSHEAGA family would like extend a huge thank you to fans, numerous sponsors and public partners including: le Gouvernement du Québec, le Ministère du Tourisme, le Secrétariat à la région métropolitaine, and Tourisme Montréal for their continued support and is very much looking forward to being reunited with them again next summer to take the festival experience to the next level July 30, 31 and August 1st, 2021 as well as OSHEAGA en Ville which is now confirmed for July 29, 2021.
Until then, the OSHEAGA team wishes everyone a safe and relaxing summer, with plenty of great music and fun at home! Fans are encouraged to stay tuned and keep in touch! It will all be worth the wait – the power of music will bring us all together again!
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m 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).
