Osheaga 2017 Sunday pics (Run the Jewels, Tegan & Sara, Foxygen, more)
Osheaga wrapped up its 2017 edition on Sunday (8/6) at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. We already told you about The Weeknd’s headlining set, which closed out the festival. Like they did at Lollapalooza a few days earlier, Run the Jewels brought out a huge crowd. The Montreal Gazette reports:
Body-shaking bass and neck-snapping beats permeated every track, as the pair bounced on the spot, delivering animated street rhymes with the crowd-rousing intensity of a pair of lifers who know how to keep the vibe on high.
And yet, they’re old/wise enough to know the difference between letting off steam and being a jerk.
“People are getting crushed up front; everybody take one step back,” El-P instructed. Then: “Everyone take one step back again.”
And the raucous fans dutifully obeyed.
Then El-P offered some advice to the men in the audience.
“If you find a woman attractive,” he said, “if you don’t know her, and you think the way to tell her is to grope her or rub your d–k up against her leg, please don’t do that.”
A roar of appreciative cheers erupted, and the party continued.
Alabama Shakes, Tegan & Sara, Phantogram, Foxygen, Denzel Curry, Flatbush Zombies, Crystal Castles, Cherry Glazerr, Ho99o9, and more were also on hand to round out the festival’s final day this year. Check out pictures in the gallery above. More pics of The Weeknd’s headlining set HERE.
