Today, Montreal’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival spread some good news and showed a light at the end of the tunnel by announcing the headliners for the 2021 edition: Foo Fighters, Cardi B and Post Malone!
Festival goers will be thrilled to know that the Foo Fighters are booked as the headline act for the first night of the festival! Much to the sheer delight of fans who were already so excited about seeing the Foo’s at the festival last year, comes the news that they will be able to celebrate 25 years of searing rock anthems courtesy of the Foo Fighters this year at one of the most exciting festivals in the world! Dave Grohl and co. will celebrate times like these with a brand-new album in 2021 called Medicine at Midnight and an epic performance at OSHEAGA’S 15th anniversary!
On Saturday, the always-eccentric, ever-exciting superstar Cardi B will be bringing the fresh attitude and good vibes to Parc Jean Drapeau. She made history recently as the first artist ever to win Favorite Song in the Rap/Hip Hop category at the AMAs twice (this time for her mega smash collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, WAP). Cardi has a knack for making history: in 2019 she won a Grammy for Best Rap Album, making her the only woman to win the award as a solo artist, as well as the first female rap artist in 15 years to be nominated for Album of the Year. 2020 has been good to Cardi, too – she will be named Woman of the Year at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Dec. 10.
For the last day, Post Malone will be celebrating the stellar year he’s had, wrapping it up with 3 Grammy nods, including nominations for Album, Record, and Song of the year! The hip-pop trap-rap crossover rockstar is always full of surprises, and as anyone who saw his online tribute to Nirvana this year can attest, Post Malone is an extremely talented performer who is as comfortable singing his signature hooks as he is letting it all out and owning the crowd with riffs galore! If his legendary 2018 performance at the festival or his sold-out Bell Centre show in Feb 2020 are any indication, his set at OSHEAGA 2021 will be a runaway hit!
Of course, the Osheaga team is aware that we are heading into uncertain times, and have been working relentlessly behind the scenes to create the ideal circumstances for OSHEAGA to move ahead without a hitch. They will be following all COVID-19 guidelines (as they evolve) and continue to update the status should anything change. The team wants to plan for the future, because there IS a light at the end of the tunnel! OSHEAGA is all about spreading joy and fun in a secure environment for everyone to celebrate 15 years of rocking stages and lighting up the sky, 15 years of friendship and fleeting moments, 15 years of new discoveries and catching up with old favourites. Until then, fans are encouraged to stay in touch and follow OSHEAGA on social media. The festival team will keep you updated on all local COVID-19 news and protocols that may affect the festival experience.
Osheaga 2021 will be taking place in Montreal, QC from July 30th to August 1st. For tickets and more information, visit https://www.osheaga.com/en.
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).
