Those who buy a pass with get an RFID bracelet. An announcement promises, "With this bracelet and the return of Osheaga Play, fans will have access to many surprises before and during the festival." More information will be confirmed when the bracelets are delivered a few months before the festival.
In addition to passes, Osheaga is selling some travel packages for out-of-towners. There are also limited-edition silkscreen posters, plus T-shirts, while supplies last.
Of course, some folks have already won posters — and one lucky winner has been given a festival pass — by participating in the aforementioned mural guessing contest.
