With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Osheaga is returning this fall for a smaller event.
OSHEAGA Get Together: What is it?
On October 1-3, 2021, the OSHEAGA Get Together will take place at Parc Jean-Drapeau, an island that we all know and love, in a Canadian-focused event.
This week, Evenko announced that it would be holding an OSHEAGA meet-up.
Parc Jean-Drapeau will host the festival from Oct. 1 through 3, with a lineup that will feature mostly Canadian musicians.
It’s really too early to make any comments with the constantly changing environment. Be assured OSHEAGA Get Together will follow all government recommendations as well as all on-site safety and health measures, which we will explain in a few weeks.
Organizers estimate that about a dozen shows will be held at the festival each day.
An official list of performers will be released in August.
The festival will only be able to accommodate 5,000 people per day, as per the provincial COVID-19 guidelines.
Further easing of restrictions could make more tickets available, say organizers.
Because the “constantly changing situation” makes it impossible to predict whether masks and vaccination certificates will be mandatory for participation, Evenko said.
Organizers explained that they would adhere to all government recommendations and implement all health and safety measures in conjunction with COVID-19.
Tickets for general admission to the event start at $85.00 for a single day, and $245.00 for the weekend. Pass prices, tax and service fees included, are as follows:
- Single Day Pass : starting at 85.00$;
- Week-end Pass : starting at 245.00$;
- GOLD Single Day Pass : starting at 135.00$;
- GOLD Week-end Pass : starting at 390.00$
