OSHEAGA 2014: All The Canadian Bands (Full and Final Preview)

31 Jul

osheaga-2014

Osheaga 2014: so near it is practically here! Here are a couple quick facts for those still unsure of the festival’s worth:

  • The festival runs for three days, from August 1st to August 3rd.
  • The festival is situated in Montreal, though more specifically the festival is set in Parc Jean-Drapeau, which itself is comprised of two islands,  Ile Sainte-Helene and Ile Notre-Dame. These islands were also the site for Montreal’s famous Expo 67.

Parc Jean-Drapeau and the Montreal skyline.

  • The name of the festival actually comes from a miscommuncation between the native Mohawk and one of the first European settlers of the region, Jacques Cartier. The Mohawk found Cartier and his way of greeting unusual, and dubbed his kind as “O she ha ga” (literally, people of shaking hands). Cartier mistook the words as “Osheaga” and thought it as the name for the local area that would later become known as Montreal.
  • Due to overwhelming ticket sales in recent years, Parc Jean-Drapeau had to be expanded in order to accommodate all the festival-goers, of which more than 70% are coming from outside of Quebec.

Facts are facts, but Osheaga just may be the no.1 music festival in Canada right now, attracting international superstars such as Jack White, Outkast, and the Arctic Monkeys as headliners. And it is all happening, starting tomorrow. For those looking for the Canadian content at Osheaga, look no further than our earlier previews, which detail each and every Canadian act as well as where they’re hailing from.
