Osheaga 2016 is finally happening this weekend and we have everything you need to know order to make the most of the weekend.

Osheaga 2016 is finally happening this weekend and if this is your first time at the festival, or even if you're a veteran attendee, we have everything you need to know in order to make the most of the weekend.

What To Bring at Osheaga

What Not to Bring at Osheaga

Learn The Map and Prepare Accordingly

There are quite a few stages at Osheaga and some are quite far from one another. There's also a lot of pedestrian traffic. Plan ahead by learning where each stage is and take a walk around the grounds earlier in the day when there are fewer people to get a feel of the area. Take travel time into account when planning your stage hopping. It can take upwards of 15 minutes just to make it to another stage.

There's more than just music

Osheaga is a music and art festival. When you have some free time, roam around, there are a lot of cool exhibits scattered all around. Hint: Most of them are located in the central area of the island.

Support the little guys, buy some merch

Even though you already spent quite a few dollars on tickets, most of that money doesn't make into to the smaller bands. Buy their merch to support them.

How to get To Osheaga

The Montreal metro is the best bet. For $17, you can buy a special pass that will be valid for all three days of the festival.

Biking: You can bike to the festival and lock it up on a fence. I'd recommend not using a Bixi as it gets quite hard to find one when it's time to leave.

Car: Not recommended! It's pricy and hard to find parking as spaces are limited.
