2012 Osheaga Music Festival ( Lineup Announced )

Posted on March 21, 2012 |

Spring has sprung and that could only mean one thing: Crocs season is back y’all!

More importantly, the lineup announcement for this year’s Osheaga Music Festival.

Its 7th edition will be held once again @ Parc Jean-Drapeau and because of last year’s success, will continue to be a 3-day affair from August 3rd to the 5th.

The headliners this year include Sigur Ros, The Black Keys, Snoop Dog and Justice.

A notch below them would be The Shins, MGMT, Feist, Bloc Party, M83, Florence And The Machine and Franz Ferdinand.

The Canuck contigent on this year’s bill:

Metric, City And Colour, Kathleen Edwards, Austra, Zeus, Plants And
Animals, The Weeknd, Dumas, Down With Webster, Zed’s Dead, Arkells,
Les Breastfeeders, Dan Mangan, Young Galaxy, Le Matos, Kandle, Hey Ocean!, Karim Ouellet, Propofol.

The young bloods:

A$AP Rocky, Young The Giant, Madeon, Zola Jesus, Of Monsters and Men, Woodkid, James Vincent McMorrow, The Jezabels, Half Moon Run.

The rest of the lineup:

Garbage, Calexico, Amadou & Mariam, Brand New, Yeasayer, Passion Pit,
Portugal. The Man, The Walkmen, Classified, Aloe Blacc, Atlas Sound, Black Lips, Little Dragon, The Black Angels, Gary Clark Jr., The Ravonettes, The Death Set, Freelance Whales, Michael Kiwanuka, Bombay Bicycle Club, Tame Impala, Dum Dum Girls, Graffiti6, Huoratron, Brandt Brauer Frick.

Not terribly excited about this lineup (yet) only because I’ve seen most of those bands in the past I would be into seeing this time around but I must say that Sigur Ros, The Black Keys, Snoop Dog, M83, The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, The Walkmen and The Ravonettes will make it worth the wicked sunburn I’m sure to be getting around day 2.

Many more acts will be announced in the coming weeks. Wanna stay in the Osheaga loop? then you should probably follow them on the Twitter and on the Facebook.

Passes will go on sale this Friday March 23rd @ Noon. — > TICKETS
