Osheaga Festival Adds Janelle Monáe, Broken Social Scene, Cypress Hill to Lineup
Published Apr 19, 2011If you've been keeping an eye on Osheaga this year, you know that the lineup thus far is already stacked. First up, the Montreal festival revealed that Death From Above 1979 would be playing their first show in Canada since reuniting earlier this year, then they announced a number of heavy hitters like the Flaming Lips, Eminem and Death Cab for Cutie would be stopping by. Clearly wanting people to get more bang for their buck, event organizers have announced that even more high-profile acts will play Parc Jean-Drapeau from July 29 to 31.
Upping the ante in star power are appearances by beloved Canuck indie troupe Broken Social Scene, as well as classic, pot-loving Cali rappers Cypress Hill. Grammy-nominated futuristic soul android Janelle Monáe will also dance her way over to Osheaga.
If that weren't enough, the festival has also added the following outfits: Charles Bradley, Joseph Arthur, Baths, the Rural Alberta Advantage, An Horse, Uncle Bad Touch, A-Rock and Shaydakiss, Midway State, Jacques Green, Dâm-Funk and Oh Land.
If things are getting complicated, Osheaga organizers have just revealed the concert schedule, which you can see here. Just FYI, Death From Above 1979 are playing the Saturday (July 30).
Three-day passes went on sale last Friday (April 15), while two-day passes and single-day tickets will be available here on Thursday (April 21).
