Osheaga Music Festival Adds To Lineup

Published: 2007-07-13
Osheaga is a two day music festival that brings a wide variety of sounds and styles to Montreal, Quebec. This year's line-up includes the Arctic Monkeys, Feist, The Smashing Pumpkins, Sam Roberts Band, the Editors, Bloc Party, and Amy Winehouse. The festival will take place on St- Helene Island, at Parc Jean-Drapeau, which also hosted Expo 67. Last year's festival had an attendance of 25,000 people of all ages.

Osheaga's MySpace page describes it as a festival that "incorporates innovative visual arts, gastronomic delights from several continents, and a swath of activities and after parties taking place at the Osheaga festival site as well as Montreal's downtown core. In its first year Osheaga brought over 50 artists to its five stages for a two-day whirlwind musical experience unlike any seen before in this 'City of Festivals'." Tickets are pricey ($150 for a weekend pass), but are still available. You can also buy a one-day ticket for either a Saturday or Sunday performance (about $80). The event will take place on September 8th and 9th, just rounding out what sounds to be another amazing festival season.

September 8-9, Montreal, QC - St- Helene Island
