Not to be outdone by London, Indio, Ibiza, Portugal, New York, or Newport, our Canadian neighbors in Quebec are upping their festival game this year. Case in point: Osheaga, a massive fest that takes place August 2 through 4 on Parc Jean-Drapeau across the water from Montreal. We've already posted the lineup, which rivals any of its competitors across the world; we're talking big names like The Cure, Phoenix, Frank Ocean, Beck, and more, along with a nice selection of our favorite up-and-comers, big indie names, and electronic acts. We're particularly excited to see some Canadian action from locals like Stars and Majical Cloudz. With five stages and three days, Osheaga is set to be chock-full of your favorite tunes. In celebration, we've made a playlist of some of the most notable bands. Whether you're attending or not, we think you can get excited.
