The Breakdown of Osheaga 2014

In this 7 hour car ride back home from the ever so magnificent weekend in Montreal I will be giving you a recap of the best moments at Osheaga!

The floral headbands had a strong presence at this 3 day weekend festival that accompanied some pretty rad artists.

DAY ONE:

Starting the day off with watching The Mowgli’s, they created the perfect ambiance of feel good vibes for the weekend. There were multiple stages through out the venue so we could explore different genres. Now i’m not the type of person to know every single artists albums and songs but I do know a fair amount of artists so I was amped to see every performer. Knowing wherever I was, I would be vibing with some sick ass music. Throughout the day we saw Awolnation, Bleachers and Foster the People. Mastering the crowd, Julia and I made it to the very front of a crowd of 2000 people to end the night with Childish Gambino and Skrillex. So close that we didn’t even need zoom for any of our pictures, and mosh pits happening all around us, I knew that this weekend was going to be a blast!
Ps. Mosh pits are basically when a group of people just get into a really big circle and atary pushing each other around while jumping like maniacs to the music. Its not meant to be a violent action, its all good fun.

DAY TWO:

Walking straight into the venue we were just on time to welcome Serena Ryder to the stage. Originally going into the set list thinking I only knew two or three songs, I was clearly proved wrong as I jammed to each one. Serena is a women that is so musically inclined that its almost inspiring. At one point she was singing, playing a guitar while drumming! After our overly priced lunch/dinner we saw HAIM from afar as our feet began to look like they just came out of a horror movie. The talented girls ended up covering XO by Beyonce and obviously I started getting more hyped. To be honest this day didn’t have many artists that I was excited to see so it was a more laid back day. The girls really wanted to see Jack White so we started making our way through the crowd during J. Coles set. At one point we stopped and this man behind me started pushing my hair and I said excuse me?! And he responded, “uhmm.. your hair… its like Mufasa”. I died laughing cause to be truthfully honest it was at that point. Finally we get close to Jack White and a most pit. Not knowing any of his songs I still bobbed my head and pretended like I knew what I was doing. Then we headed back to the hotel for a night out on the town resulting in a 40 minute walk home (6 subway stops away from our hotel). That bed was a blessing that night!

DAY THREE:

Lack of sleep and over-tiredness really hit us this day but we managed to power through. For some odd reason Sunday was the busiest day so manoeuvring through the crowds had to be done with precision! We made it just in time to see Vance Joy play so jamming out to Riptide obviously could happen. Then we grabbed some food and found a picnic bench to rest on. Having the perfect view to see Kodaline play as we bobbed our heads to the music. I was able to meet up with some old friends and tagged along with them for the rest of the evening. We ended the night watching Half Moon Run, Lorde and The Glitch Mob.
