Osheaga optimistically announces its headliners for 2021

Osheaga Festival Musique et Arts, one of the biggest annual music festivals in the country, got wiped out in 2020 for all the usual pandemic reasons. But organizers are optimistic that the 2021 edition–their 15th anniversary–will happen the weekend of July 30, 31, and August 1, 2021 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. They’ve even announced the headliners.

  • July 30: Foo Fighters
  • July 31: Cardi B
  • August 1: Post Malone

I quote from the press release: “We are aware that we are heading into uncertain times, and we have been working relentlessly behind the scenes to create the ideal circumstances for OSHEAGA to move ahead without a hitch. Of course, we will follow all COVID-19 guidelines (as they evolve) and continue to update the status should anything change, but we need to plan for the future because there IS a light at the end of the tunnel!”

You can even buy tickets. Osheaga is offering a payment plan with zero interest and zero service fees–if you buy before January 15, 2021. Shop now.

More performers will be announced soon.
