2013 Osheaga Music Festival ( Lineup Announced )

Posted on March 13, 2013 |

While my fellow bloggers and all-around music loving nerds are spending spring
break in good ‘ol Austin, Texas for South By Southwest this week, some of us left
behind in the cold, slushy weather are likely seething with jealousy.

To warm us over and give us something to look forward to, the good people at
Osheaga released (after a week’s worth of not so cryptic clues on Twitter)
the lineup for the 8th edition of this now coveted summer music festival.

Staged @ the marvelous Parc Jean-Drapeau from August 2rd to the 4th.

That’s quality booking right there.

Frenchies Phoenix will take that third headlining spot.

You got your chart topping artists like Mumford & Sons to bring in the top 40 crowd and I, for one, will get my hip hop on with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Azelia Banks and Big Boi.

That is, of course, just the tip of the musical iceberg.

More will be announced soon so I would suggest you stay in the know through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
