The Osheaga music festival has been a linchpin in Montreal over the past 15 years.
Before you-know-what cancelled the 2020 edition, Parc Jean Drapeau’s popular music festival had taken place every summer since 2006.
Drawing in crowds over 40,000 people a day (remember what that was like?), Osheaga has welcomed the likes of Coldplay, The Smashing Pumpkins, Eminem, The Killers, Weezer, Snoop Dog, The Black Keys, Radiohead, Mumford and Sons, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (to name a few) over the years.

The festival is optimistic it will return this summer, with Cardi B, the Foo Fighters, and Post Malone slated to headline the three-day fest.
Scheduled for July 30 to August 1, Osheaga says it is “aware that we are heading into uncertain times” but has vowed to work “relentlessly behind the scenes to create the ideal circumstances for Osheaga to move ahead without a hitch.”
Organizers say all COVID-19 guidelines will be followed to ensure customer safety.
Weekend passes are on sale now even though the full lineup has yet to be announced.
Until more details trickle through, Osheaga has been sharing photos of years past across its social media platforms. If you’re missing the festival or want to try and spot yourself partying in 2008, check out some shots of Osheaga and popular artists from yesteryear.
