Charlotte Cardin – A fitting choice for the first evening’s top spot, Charlotte Cardin performs in both French and English and first captured Québec’s ears and hearts after appearing on the province’s version of The Voice (and again on France’s edition to boot). Her material blends electronic music with elements of pop and jazz flourishes.
Jessie Reyez – Rising R&B artist Jessie Reyez has made her presence known everywhere from her own award-winning albums, collaborations with Eminem and other hip-hop superstars and from guest appearances on major releases like The Lion King: The Gift. Here, she rightfully takes the stage as the headline artist it was clear she’s always been.
Half Moon Run – Topping the bill on the festival’s final night, Montréal’s Half Moon Run are more than just hometown heroes, but loved the world over for their unique brand of anthemic indie singalongs. As local lads done good, they’ll make for a fitting close to the proceedings.
A storied history
Set to return in 2022, Osheaga’s past headline performers have included the likes of Radiohead, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Snoop Dogg, Beck, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd, with a skilled curatorial eye turned to the most up and coming on the festival’s additional stages. As Canada’s answer to Coachella, Osheaga is an annual pilgrimage for music lovers that sets the bar for multi-day urban music festivals set in the bucolic surroundings of Parc Jean-Drapeau and the St. Lawrence River – one of the most beautiful backdrops for a music festival imaginable. Welcome back, Osheaga!
