Top 10 Bands On Osheaga 2012's Lineup
Evenko finally revealed the much anticipated Osheaga 2012 lineup this week. Once again, Osheaga remains a three day festival spanning from August 3-5, 2012 in addition to the Osheaga in the City festivities throughout the month. It's nice seeing bands that served as opening acts in years prior having made their way up the ranks of headliners. Without further ado, here are the top 10 musical acts to watch out for at Osheaga 2012.
No. 10City And Colour
It's a double Osheaga whammy! City And Colour return to Montreal for their second festival appearance in a row. City and Colour will undoubtably put on a great performance but the lack of new material since last year's Osheaga pushes the band down to number 10.
No. 9Snoop Dogg
MGMT continues to gain a lot of traction and their self-titled album is just around the corner. They'll begin performing their new songs in Latin America soon before bringing them up North where you'll also be able to hear them.
M83 has been around for over a decade but it wasn't until Pitchfork placed their latest record, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, on the number 3 spot in their Best Album of 2011 list that people began to notice. They most likely won't be playing on the main stages so you'll have to move your butt a bit to see them, but it will be worth it.
