Expecting crowds of over 25,000 at Osheaga 2011, the three-day rock festival will feature a lineup consisting of Eminem, KiD CuDi, Lupe Fiasco, Ratatat, The Flaming Lips, Elvis Costello & The Imposters plus over 50 other artists will surely be a highlight across all 2011 summer festivals.
The festival will be spread over three days in Montreal, Quebec from July 29 to July 31 in the Parc Jean-Drapeau -- an area comprised of two islands: Saint Helen's Island and artificial island Ile Notre-Dame (if you're into the island-festival scene, also check out Governors Ball). Preceding the music festival is Osheaga in the City, a sister concert series with a killer lineup that happens in various venues around Montreal from July 27 to July 30.
So, if you want the full-blast of Canadian hospitality and local parties, stay in Montreal for an entire week, from July 27 to July 31 so you can catch both Osheaga 2011 and Osheaga in the City. With sponsorship by Redbull and Corona, there shouldn't be any shortage of fluids in the summer heat while you jam out to all the bands in the Osheaga lineup.
Update: Osheaga just released their promotional video for the festival. Check it out here. Plus, get pumped. Eminem killed it at Bonaroo (foreshadowing Osheaga will be crazy).
