Jun 9 2016, 7:50 pm

The Osheaga Music and Arts Festival will be taking over the city once again from July 29 to July 31 marks the 11-year anniversary of the three-day long indie music festival, and as usual, this year is promised to be better than the last.

Hosted at Parc Jean Drapeau, festivalgoers will get to simultaneously enjoy the sights of downtown Montreal’s beautiful skyline and the sounds of their favourite musical artists.
This year’s headliners are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, and Radiohead. Other major acts include The Lumineers, Haim, Death Cab for Cutie, Bastille, Grimes, and Passenger.


The daily lineup is now available and can be seen here. Unfortunately, the three headliners are all performing on different days so you’re going to have to make some big decisions. To give you a sneak peek, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Passenger, and the Lumineers are all scheduled to perform on Friday, July 29. Lana Del Rey, Bastille, Death Cab for Cutie, Haim, and Montreal favourite, Busty and the Bass are all performing on Saturday, July 30. Finally, Radiohead and Grimes will be taking the stage on Sunday, July 31.

Ticket types and prices vary. Single day passes range from $115 (the lowest ticket option available for the festival) to $230. The least expensive single pass sold for $115 provides you general admission into the festival on a day of your choosing. The $230 single pass option, known as the ‘Gold’ option, gets you into the festival, as well as provides you with access to private washrooms and the Osheaga terrasse for premium viewing.

If you’re looking to spend a little more dough, weekend passes are available at a premium. A general admission pass for three days will set you back $310. A Gold weekend pass is valued at $575 and a Platinum weekend pass comes out to $929. The Gold weekend pass offers the same amenities as the Gold single day pass. The Platinum weekend pass however, grants festivalgoers access to the Osheaga terrasse, private washrooms, the Platinum Lounge, and provides them with fast lane entry to the site and a shuttle service between stages. The Platinum pass is currently sold out.
