Osheaga Music and Arts Festival is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It’s an annual 3 day summer festival held at Parc Jean-Drapeau. The grounds are composed of 6 different stages that all cater to different audiences. Osheaga has cemented itself as one of the largest and most talked-about festivals in Canada.
The name Osheaga was a title that was given to the region of Montreal, Canada. One of the first European settlers to arrive in Montreal, Jacques Cartier, is known to be the first to have heard the term. The folk-story is that when Cartier and his men were first approaching the land by boat the natives started yelling “O she ha ga” translated to “people of the shaking hands.” It is said that Jacques didn’t know they were talking about him but thought they were warning him of “giant rapids.” However if you ask the native community they claim the term did not originate from their ancestors acknowledging the settlers waving hands, but the similar sounding word “Oshahaka” which meant the settlers' weird obsession to shake hands. No matter which naming-origin story you choose to believe, it is very cool how festival founders honoured the land’s history when deciding on a name.
Osheaga was founded by Nick Farkas. As a student at local Concordia University, Farkas started booking shows. He was frustrated with the lack of a punk scene in Montreal so he took it upon himself to call up punk bands and book them. He then co-founded Greenland Production in 1993. After learning the ropes and knowing the potential of the incredible city of Montreal he founded Osheaga in 2006. He has parlayed his festival execution experience into launching other Montreal based festivals IleSoniq, Heavy Montreal and YUL EAT.
It is highly recommended to stay in downtown Montreal. With the the festival grounds (Parc Jean-Drapeau) located just 7 minutes from the downtown core it makes attendees' lives easier (just liked BookSeats.com). Montreal is one of Canada’s major cities; rich in history but also vibrant and up-beat. For those wanting to experience the culture and cuisine they can do things like visit Old Montreal, eat the infamous poutine and smoked meat sandwiches, and really emerge themselves in the french language. For those wanting to “hit the town,” Montreal’s nightlife, club scene and bars are some of North America’s best….now the real question is, who can incorporate both types of experiences into their trip? With BookSeats.com Osheaga attendees can customize all aspects of their festival-trip from flights, to hotels to ticket tiers, allowing them to create their ideal itinerary with ease.
