Top 7 Musicians On Osheaga’s Newly-Announced Bill

Montreal is hosting the Osheaga music and arts festival again this year at Parc Jean-Drapeau, and it runs from August 4-6. Recently announcing their line-up, these are the top 7 musicians on Osheaga’s bill.

The Weeknd

Riding on his wave of continued success, his third album Starboy as well as the single by the same name have consistently been topping charts.


This English rock band has been around for more than two decades, winning two Grammys and releasing Drones in 2015.


New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde hasn’t put out any recent albums, keeping under the radar, which is why her appearance at Osheaga is so exciting.

Major Lazer

Electronic music trio Major Lazer released the third single from their upcoming album Music is the Weapon this year – the full album should be out before their performance at Osheaga.

Alabama Shakes

This Alabama-grown award-winning band was recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Performance “Joe” (Live from Austin City Limits).


Sister of the infamous Beyonce, Solange is making a name for herself in the music world – she put out her third studio album last September called A Seat at the Table.

Vance Joy

Climbing the ranks, UK singer/songwriter Vance Joy won Best Male Artist at the ARIA Music Awards back in 2015 for his one and only album, Dream Your Life Away.
