2009 Osheaga Music Festival ( Lineup Announced )

Posted on March 31, 2009 |

I don’t know what it is about this blog and music festivals but …

Yesterday was all about All West Point and their lineup announcement,
today, It’s Osheaga’s turn and right off the bat, it’s miles ahead
better then last year’s lineup.

Also, this year’s edition will be a 4 day affair, July 30-31 in the city,
August 1-2 on Sainte-Hélène Island (Parc Jean-Drapeau).

Coldplay and Beastie Boys are the headliners and you have bands like
Elbow (8 years i’ve waited for them to come back and play our fair city,
and it’s at an outdoor music fest) The Roots, Girl Talk, Lykke Li,
Artic Monkeys (back for their 2nd time), The Ting Tings,
local bands Winter Gloves and Parlovr and so many many
more rounding out this year’s roster.

This is without a doubt, Osheaga’s best lineup to date and I have a
tough decision ahead of me. Go to APW and have a chance to stay a
few days in NYC in the process? or just be lazy and stay home and
see some of the same bands I’d get to see at APW.

Since this is only Osheaga’s partial lineup being announced today,
we’ll see how the rest of said lineup turns out.

Tickets go onsale this Friday @ noon.
