Osheaga Music and Arts Festival is returning to Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sante-Hélène from Aug. 4 to 6, and the festival has unveiled its headlining artists as Rüfüs Du Sol, Billie Eilish and Kendrick Lamar.
“15 years into this journey we have been fortunate to have some of the greatest acts in the world grace our stages,” Nick Farkas, Senior Vice President of Booking, Concerts and Events at evenko and Founder of Osheaga, said in a statement. “I feel that this year’s headliners continue in that tradition and represent what our festival is all about: Amazing live performances! We are excited to see Rüfüs Du Sol and Billie Eilish graduate to the main stages after their excellent performances in 2019 and 2018, and we anxiously await the return of Kendrick Lamar whose 2015 set is definitely in the running for one of the best Osheaga hardline sets ever. Long live Live Music, we hope you enjoy this year as much as we will.”
