Montreal’s OSHEAGA Music Festival 2021: “The Light at the End of the Tunnel”

By: Abbey Hebert

OSHEAGA Music and Arts Festival, a renowned music festival in Montreal, Quebec, is planning to hold a 2021 festival, while accommodating COVID social-distancing guidelines. Though OSHEAGA is aware that COVID changes guidelines and circumstances daily, they emphasize how important it is to plan for the future, "because there IS a light at the end of the tunnel!" Through this music festival, they want to offer an entertaining time after nearly a year of difficulties, but, more importantly, they are prioritizing the safety of attendees and will pay close attention to the trajectory of COVID guidelines.

OSHEAGA's headliners for the 2021 festival are the Foo Fighters, Cardi B, Post Malone, among others. The Foo Fighters, a band that fans were very excited about seeing last year, will be performing the first night, kicking off their band's own 25th-year anniversary and OSHEAGA's 15th-year anniversary. Foo Fighter fans will also be ecstatic to know that the band is releasing an album in February 2021, entitled Medicine at Night—a great way to celebrate their 25th year together.

Cardi B, who recently was the first artist to win the AMA for Favorite Song in the Rap/Hip Hop category twice, will also be performing at OSHEAGA's music festival. Cardi B is a trailblazer, as she was also the first woman to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album as a solo artist, which she did in 2019, and the first female rap artist in 15 years to be nominated for Album of the Year. Cardi B was also named Woman of the Year at Billboard's Women in Music Event on December 10. You don't want to miss this trendsetter's energetic and iconic performance!

Post Malone, an acclaimed and highly esteemed artist, received three Grammy nods this year, with nominations for Album, Record, and Song of the Year. He will be performing his iconic hip-pop trap-rap tracks with a few signature riffs. Just watch his Nirvana tribute from 2020 to witness Post Malone's talent, which he no doubt will bring onto OSHEAGA's stage to ensure an unforgettable experience.

OSHEAGA is also providing a new way of paying. People who purchase tickets before January 15, 2021, can choose to partake in a payment plan with zero interest and zero service fees. The OSHEAGA Music Festival in 2021 will be held July 30, 31, and August 1 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montréal.
