Indie Music Festival in Montreal!!!

I have to say I've slowly become jealous seeing all of the amazing music festivals cropping up in every nook and crany of North America (even in Lawrence, Kansas!). We do have the fantastic POP Montreal Festival every fall, but there's nothing like the mix of music and sunshine on the skin. Jealous no longer, the Osheaga Festival has just been announced in Montreal during Labor Day weekend! (is it Labour Day in Canada? I thought that was just and American holiday.)

40 bands across 4 stages for 2 days of music and arts. The line-up is starting to look like this:
Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals
Flaming Lips
Sonic Youth
Damian Marley
Bedouin Soundclash
K-Os
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Dinosaur Jr.
Starsailor
The Hidden Cameras
Final Fantasy
Bell Orchestre
The Stills
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
DobaCaracol
Islands
Malajube
The Magic Numbers
Lady Sovereign
Joseph Arthur
Wolf Parade
World Party

Get your $80 weekend tickets this weekend through Higher Ground. It looks to be a great time at the beautiful Parc Jean-Drapeau amongst Buckminster Fuller's Geodesic Dome, Alexander Calder's Man, and a stones through from Casino de Montreal.

    Yeah, Jazz fest. That's always a blast too. I think Calexico will be there too.
