The time has come! The long-awaited OSHEAGA Get Together presented by Bell in collaboration with Coors Light is upon us, and this weekend is primed to be an unforgettable reunion for fans of music and arts looking for a return to normal! The Get Together begins this Friday at the Espace 67 site of Parc Jean-Drapeau, on beautiful Île Sainte-Hélène. To prepare for tomorrow, our team has created a playlist containing our favorite hits from the lineup!
Here are a few things festival-goers need to know about this special edition of Canada’s most iconic music festival!
For reasons beyond the festival’s control, Grandson cannot make it to OSHEAGA Get Together. He will be replaced by American synth pop superstars LANY, who have toured in support of acts like Troye Sivan and Halsey. They will undoubtedly play songs from their brand new album gg bb xx. Tommy Genesis will also have to pull out for reasons beyond the festival’s control, but the public will have the opportunity to discover the talented Fernie who has been making major waves in Quebec with his first album, Aurora, released in September.
Exciting news for those who cannot be there in person this year : festival-lovers will be able to access the OSHEAGA good vibes through free live streaming! Fans are encouraged to listen to OSHEAGA Get Together all weekend on iHeartRadio or watch on TikTok Live for a full visual experience! Visit osheaga.com October 1 to 3 from 3pm to 11pm to catch your favourite bands rock an OSHEAGA stage from anywhere!
Safety on site:
The security & well-being of the fans, the artists and the staff is the festival’s number one priority. In order to keep you hydrated, there will be multiple stations distributing free water to anyone who brings a reusable bottle. Also, please note that due to the fall weather, it is recommended to dress accordingly.
OSHEAGA Get Together is proud to announce that the organization L’Aparté by Juripop will deploy on site its intervention team of specialists, whose mission is to act against all forms of harassment (psychological or sexual), in order to do vigilance and accompaniment for situations of unwanted nature.
The festival is also proud to highlight the presence of GRIP Montréal, once again this year, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to reduce the harm associated with the consumption of psychoactive substances and prevent problematic use, on the festival site. On this occasion, GRIP Montréal will have a relaxation space named the ”Haven” to accompany festival goers who need some quiet time, rest, and support from a qualified worker.
As a way of saying thank you to health care workers for the incredible work they do every day, OSHEAGA will have the pleasure of welcoming close to 1,000 staff members from the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) and the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal) for its Get Together. A well-deserved reward!
Reminder : OSHEAGA Get Together will be held in compliance with provincial health and safety guidelines for outdoor events. Therefore, a vaccine passport will be required to enter the site and a certain physical distance must be maintained to ensure the safety of all. For more information, please check out the FAQ.
OSHEAGA Get Together, presented by Bell in collaboration with Coors Light, will be taking place October 1-3 2021 at Jean Drapeau Parc in Montreal, QC. For more information and tickets, visit osheaga.com.
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).
