This fall, Montreal will come alive with a musical celebration at the OSHEAGA Get Together presented by Bell in collaboration with Coors Light, taking place between October 1-3, 2021 on beautiful Île Sainte-Hélène at Parc Jean-Drapeau. It will be a unique opportunity for fans to reunite and enjoy world-class live music in an intimate outdoor setting (with the stunning beauty of Montreal’s skyline as a backdrop for the two-stage setup).
The three-day OSHEAGA Get Together will feature moving performances from a wide array of festival favourites, with a focus on Canadian and local talent. Headlining will be some of this city’s top international exports, including Charlotte Cardin, the critical darling who just sold out 11 shows at Montreal’s MTELUS (scheduled for 2022) – that’s 24 000 tickets sold within a couple of days! The Montreal-born singer/songwriter, who is as comfortable crooning an intimate jazz tune as she is swimming in a sea of electro beats and pop sensibilities, takes the stage Friday, October 1st. The incredibly talented artist – who is an OSHEAGA favourite, having played the fest in 2016 – quickly made a name for herself as one of Quebec’s most notable talents and greatest exports, having amassed over 149 MILLION streams around the world! With her new album, Phoenix, burning up the charts, fans know that this will be an unforgettable show!
Saturday night, rising pop star Jessie Reyez will take the stage. With multiple Junos under her belt, including Breakthrough Artist of the Year (2018) and the following two consecutive years for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year (2019 & 2020), the Colombian-born, Toronto-raised singer will prove why she is considered one of the great ones by fans and critics all over the world. The Canadian gem has been shortlisted for the Polaris Prize twice already in her relatively short career, so far, and she’s worked on hits for the likes of Dua Lipa, Calvin Harris, Sam Smith and Eminem. Reyez also delivered a blistering set at the outdoor blowout event for the Montreal International Jazz Festival in 2018, and as anyone who witnessed that show will attest, this will be a can’t miss set!
The Sunday night headliners will be Half Moon Run – one of the most exciting young live acts who perfectly capture the essence of Montreal’s indie sound. With a new EP out, Inwards and Onwards, the group continues to make a name for themselves with unforgettable live performances that marry multi-layered harmonies with driving percussion and a catalogue of songs that always inspire impromptu singalongs from the crowd. The Juno Award winners will be turning heads full circle when they take the stage Sunday, October 3rd.
Nick Farkas, Senior Vice President, Booking, Concerts and Events at evenko and founder of Osheaga, explains:
“We are keenly aware of how important live music is to our fans and our city, and how much everyone misses it. We are thrilled about this announcement, because we promised fans that we would do everything in our power to get them to Parc Jean-Drapeau to be united by live music again as soon as possible, and we are going to make that happen!”
The OSHEAGA Get Together will follow all government recommendations and all on-site COVID-19 health and safety measures, which will be communicated at a date closer to the event.

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).
