This afternoon, the festival issued a statement, informing festivalgoers that "We are currently experiencing severe weather conditions. The show schedule is temporarily interrupted." Along with this notice, Environment Canada issued tornado warnings in the area.
Soon after, though, the festival got things back underway, even going so far as to tweet "What rain???"
Besides the festival-stopping weather at the actual site, Osheaga has been hit with several artist cancellations so far. As previously reported today, Solange announced she would no longer be playing the event, while now De La Soul and Noname have axed their sets due to "unforeseen travel issues."
You can see a collection of tweets from the festival below, including several posts from some very wet looking attendees.
Osheaga runs until Sunday (August 6) at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal and is set to feature the likes of Lorde, Justice, Muse, Major Lazer, the Weeknd, Alabama Shakes, Run the Jewels, Father John Misty and tons more. See the initial day-by-day lineup here, and visit the official festival website for any additional information and updates.
