The Montreal Canadiens won’t be making the NHL playoffs this year, extending their Stanley Cup drought to 25 years. So while there’s no reason to head north across the border to Montreal this spring, the city is offering enticing bait for a summer visit: Osheaga Music & Arts Festival.
This year’s fest goes down August 3 to 5 at Parc Jean-Drapeau, with Travis Scott, Arctic Monkeys, and Florence & The Machine on as headliners. Friday’s lineup also features The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, St. Vincent, James Blake, Lykke Li, Quinn XCII, Julien Baker, and more; highlighting Saturday are Khalid, Tyler, The Creator, Billie Eilish, Blondie, Alvvays, and others; while Sunday showcases Alex Lahey, The National, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, BORNS, A R I Z O N A, Franz Ferdinand, Gang Of Youths, DVSN, and more.
Also on tap for Saturday are Boston’s luhx., the Berklee synth-soul project we hyped last week.
Peep the full lineup below, score ticket info here, and may the curse of Patrick Roy extend another 25 years.
