The headliners are officially out for the 2023 edition of Montreal’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival.

A news release issued by organizers Wednesday unveiled the big names for the annual summer event, which will run from Aug. 4 to 6.

Australian trio Rüfüs Du Sol will take to the stage Friday, the first day of the three-day show. Los Angeles native and award-winning musician Billie Eilish has been tapped as the headliner for the following day.

California rapper Kendrick Lamar will close out Osheaga on Sunday. The Grammy-winning star is a familiar face for festival goers and was supposed to be among a handful of headliners in 2020, but the event was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All three acts have appeared at Osheaga in past years, with Lamar hitting the main stage in 2015 while Eilish performed on a smaller stage in 2018. Rüfüs Du Sol made their debut a year later.

The full festival program will be announced at a later date, but hopeful attendees can snag three-day tickets starting at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 16.

The 16th edition of Osheaga will take place at Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau.
