The 15th edition of Osheaga officially kicks off on Friday at 2 pm, which means those taking public transit will have ample time to arrive while still enjoying a discounted fee. The festival will likely wrap up before midnight on Sunday.
The STM made another positive stride earlier this week when they announced — to the delight of many — that they would be updating turnstiles within the next year, allowing riders to pay for entry with bank cards.
The new technology will likely lower wait times at ticket booths.
