Sure it snowed last week but that doesn’t mean that summer isn’t around the corner, does it? And one of the best parts of summer in Montreal is Osheaga weekend. That means it’s time for another Osheaga podcast!

To get ourselves (and you!) hyped up for one of our favorite weekends of the year Sarah and I do what we do every year: listen to the whole dang lineup and make an impossible to follow schedule for all 3 days by falling in love with a dozen artists each day! This episode we take a look once again at Friday’s lineup and choose some of our favorite non-headline acts:

Our picks:

This year’s Friday lineup has to be one of our favorites since limiting ourselves to “just” 10 bands was actually pretty difficult. Some artists who we love on Friday include: Two Feet, Rina Sawayama, bbno$ and Kora. Suffice it to say we’re probably getting to the festival pretty early on Friday.

Anyhow, June is right around the corner so that means that we’re about to dive into Saturday’s lineup. See you in two weeks!

Osheaga runs from August 2nd to 4th at Parc Jean Drapeau, music starts at 14h each day. Check out for more info and tickets.
