If you read the blog often, you know that Osheaga is one of my favorite things about Montréal: three days with music, sun and people who came to have fun is something very hard to top in my books.

I spent the three days of Osheaga Festival in great company with Marie Claire and we tried to see almost everyone we had made a plan to see & were pretty successful at it (sorry Icona Pop but we had to stay to the main stage to have great places for Kendrick :/).

It was an amazing week end and the perfect way to feel like you're away from the city since it's kinda far to go there and the fact that almost everyone was from out of Québec there also helped. Plus the sun, the good weather (except for 20 minutes of rain on Sunday), the great music and the Gaufrabec truck helped a lot to make this musical week end an amazing experience. 
It's definitely something I'll be doing next year if the line up is interesting.

We managed to see a total of 20 artists and honestly there is not one I disliked.
It would've been 22 if Frank Ocean and Azealia Banks made it but I'm not mad since I'm sure I'll find a way to see them live anyway. I'm just a little mad at the little rollercoaster of happiness/deception evenko made me go through when they announced Miguel was gonna replace Frank but didn't finally due to a scheduling conflict with a member of his band.

 Tegan & Sara
 Imagine Dragons
 Angel Haze
 Jessie Ware
 Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
 Big Boi
 The Lumineers
 Mumford and Sons

If I have to pick favorite moments from each day, it would be discovering how good Baauer is on Friday, jumping on Can't Hold Us and popping tags on Saturday with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and rapping along with Kendrick Lamar on Sunday.

Also I was thinking about hitting the Piknic Electronik before the end of the summer and after experiencing how good this scene was with Baauer, Porter Robinson, Jets and Pretty Lights, it's definitely something I need to do!

Dress-code wise I followed my own advices and felt comfortable in my dirty vans and crop tops the whole week end.
I suggest you follow them too if you plan on going to a festival anytime soon ;)

All in all in was three amazing days although it was exhausting and I really can't wait to see what evenko has in store for us next year (hopefully Frank Ocean - who cancelled two years in a row, Iggy, Rita Ora, No Doubt, Major Lazer, etc.). 
I might even try the Coachella experience if the lineup is interesting and it's feasible..
