Passes are still on sale.
Head to Osheaga’s site to see the three-day schedule and/or download the Osheaga app to customize yours.
Any major conflicts for you? Friday, headlined by Lorde, isn’t too bad, but on Saturday we’re bummed to have to choose between rapper Danny Brown and Oasis’s Liam Gallagher (check out what he just played in NYC). Having to choose between Cloud Nothings and Nicolas Jaar is also unfortunate (not to mention both are on against Muse). Sunday we highly recommend you get there in time for Cherry Glazerr. Later in the day it’s tough to decide between Whitney and Phantogram, and between Run the Jewels and Little Dragon. Ending Sunday includes a decision between DFA1979 and The Weeknd.
