Montreal's Osheaga Music and Arts Festival has announced the headliners for its 2023 edition: Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish and RÜFÜS DU SOL.

The festival runs from August 4 to 6 at Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, with RÜFÜS DU SOL headlining Friday, Eilish on Saturday, and Lamar closing things out on Sunday. All three artists have played Osheaga in the past.

Osheaga founder Nick Farkas said in a statement, "15 years into this journey we have been fortunate to have some of the greatest acts in the world grace our stages. I feel that this year's headliners continue in that tradition and represent what our festival is all about: Amazing live performances! We are excited to see RÜFÜS DU SOL and Billie Eilish graduate to the main stages after their excellent performances in 2019 and 2018, and we anxiously await the return of Kendrick Lamar, whose 2015 set is definitely in the running for one of the best Osheaga headline sets ever. Long live Live Music, we hope you enjoy this year as much as we will."

The rest of the lineup will be announced in the coming months.
