The Osheaga Music and Arts Festival is back, with the 15th-anniversary edition finally set to happen this summer! The last two editions were cancelled due to the pandemic. From July 29th through August 31st, 2022, this highly-anticipated multi-day event will mark the first full-scale Osheaga since the summer of 2019. Trust us when we say, Canada is ready to party!
Celebrations are definitely in order due to the festival's pandemic-related hiatus as well as their soon-to-be epic milestone! The organizers have certainly outdone themselves, securing a whopping 100 artists and the highly-praised Parc Jean-Drapeau location. We have no doubts this three-day fest will be anything short of spectacular!
The three headliners, FooFighters, A$APRocky and DuaLipa represent the divers programming perfectly. Attendees can count on a vast variety of genres, including electronic dance music, rap, indie, pop and much more! Be sure to grab your tickets before it's too late! Full weekend passes went on sale yesterday morning, and single-day passes go on sale tomorrow, Friday, at noon.
“We’ve never been only about headliners. From the first band on stage onwards is important to us. We always wanted to be a festival that has a strength of lineup from top to bottom. So for the 15th anniversary, we really wanted to look at how things fit together. What we needed to fill out a day was super important.
“But as the festivals changed over time in North America, the headliners’ position became more and more important. So obviously we have major heavy hitters as headliners, but it doesn’t change the fact that to me our line four, five or six (on the poster) are still strong. You see a lot of these festivals come out and they’re super top-heavy.” said Nick Farkas, senior vice-president of booking and concerts at Evenko and the founder of Osheaga.
Flag fam, we have to take a moment to appreciate the huge dance music bookings! You can count on special performances by Kygo, ChrisLake, Meduza, Malaa, JohnSummit, SevenLions, AlanWalker, Apashe and more!
