The Osheaga Arts & Music Festival is absolutely one of the biggest events of the summer in a city that is defined by having a million big events in the summer. And this year, it’s going to be even bigger. The last two editions of Osheaga took place on a temporary site that made the best of re-purposed sections of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve but 2019 will mark the return of the festival to the original site. By original site I of course mean a newly renovated site that boasts a capacity somewhere over 65,000 people.

So to celebrate Osheaga being even bigger than ever we are making our podcast specials even bigger than ever. How much bigger? Twice as bigger. That’s right, instead of one episode a day, Sarah and I will be breaking down our picks for each day across two episodes. When are we starting? Right now.

Our first episode is dedicated to “bands” playing on Friday. We’ll be back in two weeks to explore some of our favorite picks with more of a electronic or hip-hop slant. Expect a new episode around the 15th and 30th of each month all summer long right up until the festival.

Enjoy the show!
