Osheaga Music and Arts Festival TicketsThe Osheaga Music and Arts Festival is an annual summer event held at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. Although many groups and performers play sets at the festival, it is touted primarily as an indie rock fest. Osheaga started in 2006 and has seen consistently high attendance numbers ever since.
Combining New and Established Indie ArtistsMany fans and organizers of the event claim that Osheaga is perhaps the most important festival of its genre that is currently held anywhere in Canada. With attendees coming from all over Europe and North America for the last Osheaga Music and Arts Festival, it's not hard to see why this might be the case. One of the unique aspects of Osheaga is its mission statement. Festival managers wanted a way to bring emerging artists together with established acts and give them a chance to play alongside one another in harmony. This goal has led to early successes and recognition for many starting bands or artists. The first year of the event gained a respectable number of patrons. However, Osheaga really took off in its second year, booking established bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Smashing Pumpkins or artists like M.I.A. Although there is some dispute as to the true etymology of the festival name, some tribes on First Nations reservations favor the explanation that "osheaga" is "people of the hands."
