Fans of the Osheaga festival will ultimately not have to wait until 2022 since the event will be back this fall, at Parc Jean-Drapeau, but in a reduced version and mainly featuring Canadian artists.
Evenko, the promoter of this flagship musical event of the Montreal summer, made the announcement on social networks Thursday morning. “FINALLY, Homecoming. We will be celebrating music and art IN PERSON this fall. “
The mini-festival, called Les Retrouvailles Osheaga, will take place from October 1 to 3, with the headliner Charlotte Cardin, Jessie Reyez and Half Moon Run: artists from here, but of international stature. About 30 others will also be in the game, but the list will not be revealed until later in August.
Preparing for current health measures, Evenko plans to receive up to 5,000 people daily at its site.
The promoter had raised a wave of disappointment at the end of April, by announcing the postponement of the Osheaga festival the following summer, delaying for the second time in a row the opportunity to celebrate its 15th anniversary with great fanfare.
