The highly anticipated bill dropped on Tuesday, revealing some of the biggest names in music. The Lumineers, The Chemical Brothers and Childish Gambino have been confirmed as headliners for the Quebec-based festival.

This year, Osheaga will return to Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau. The summer music festival takes place between Aug. 2 and 4.

A plethora of popular artists was also revealed to be joining the iconic trio of headliners, including Interpol, City and Colour, Janelle Monae, Tame Impala, Flume, Logic and Hozier among many more.

Osheaga has been known for its constant rotation of solid lineups since its inception in 2006.

Welcoming many of the biggest artists across the globe, both old and new, Osheaga has successfully enticed tens of thousands of music-lovers to attend the festival for a dozen years.

From Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay and The Killers, to Lana Del Ray, Radiohead and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Osheaga’s lineups have made it one of the most popular, if not the most popular festival in Canada.

However, it seems this year’s incarnation has left many avid festival-goers in disappointment.

While it offers a great variety of musical acts from different genres, it seems people are confused as to what kind of audience the festival hopes to attract.
