Osheaga!!!

It's been a long time but I figure I should update everyone on one of my new experiences of the summer. I went to {Osheaga}, an annual music festival, for the first time! We attended 3 days worth of heat, rain, sun, music, and good times! Osheaga is the largest festival of its kind in Canada. It takes place in Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, an island that is only accessible by the Metro. It not only showcases some big names, but it also attempts to show some emerging local and national artists. Over the three days, over 90 bands perform. This year some of the big names included: The Black Keys, Snoop Lion (nee: Dogg), Feist, Metric, Florence & the Machine, Garbage, City & Colour, The Shins, MGMT, Fun., Franz Ferdinand, the Sheepdogs, and many more, which can be seen {here}

Instead of staying in a hotel, we decided to rent an apartment, which was AMAZING!! It's something we would definitely do again. The place we chose was centrally located and had many restaurants and shops nearby. Oh, and it was super close to the Metro too!

I don't know if I could do such a big festival again, but it's a definite must try!
