What not to miss at Osheaga Music and Art Festival this year

LB Culture

Music, food & shoes - this festival’s got it all

Only a couple of days before it starts

One of our fave weekend of the year is almost here and we seriously can’t wait anymore. We’re pretty sure you’ve been counting the days, just like us. Yes, you guessed right, Osheaga is right around the corner. And that’s why we gathered everything you shouldn’t miss.

First things first, the music. This year, as always, Osheaga gives lots of stage time to the youngsters. Tyler the Creator invited his friend Rex Orange County to come along for the ride to Montreal - we bet these cool kids will give a fun show. On Sunday, don’t forget to Insta Story your two girl crushes of 2018: Dua Lipa & Tash Sultana. Trust us, you’ll make a lot of great discoveries over the weekend.

The organizers didn’t forget Montreal and made sure to add local talent to the lineup. Consider us already OOO for A-Trak’s set, Paupière, Milk & Bone and this year’s sensation, Loud. The homie is sure to make all of us sing and dance, and we already know it’ll be pure fire.

Are we sure there is enough Hip Hop on this year’s lineup? There’s no such thing as too many ill beats so we’re pumped at the idea of flossing to Post Malone, Travis Scott, Rae Sremmurd and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. And, don’t be bummed, if you’re a guitar lover, you’ll be pleased to hear Arctic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The National and Florence + The Machine scream their hearts out.

Like always, foodies will be happy to try all the food from Montreal’s finest food trucks and caterers. This year, Osheaga is hosting the YUL EAT Gardens which will offer a premium food offer featuring 5 incredible Montreal restaurants. Also, make sure to have a look at Osheaga’s official website to discover all the activities they have in store for you.

And, don’t forget to come say hi to our team that will be waiting for you at our very own Little Burgundy Shoes booth where you’ll get a chance to win goodies by playing at Spin the Wheel, and immortalize your best looks after getting your kicks cleaned at our shoe-cleaning station (in partnership with Jason Markk) and snapped by talented photographers.

Only a couple of days before the musical madness all starts. Until then, make sure you listen to all the bands on the lineup that you don’t know yet, get the sunscreen ready and fill up your fanny pack with all the essentials. We’ll see you at Parc Jean-Drapeau for the best weekend of the summer!
