Big News Of The Day – May 18, 2012: Osheaga Festival finalizes 2012 lineup with new additions

Just bury me at Osheaga mom.

With a lineup that no longer rivals Coachella or Lollapalooza, Osheaga delivers the real deal in 2012, and with a little room to spare.  We think this is the final lineup in August, and get this:   The Black Keys, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Garbage, Sigor Ros, Metric, Franz Ferdinand, The Shins, Florence + the Machine, Snoop Dogg, Bloc Party, M83, etc.

 

If anyone reading the entire festival poster doesn’t have at least eight of their favorite bands playing in Montreal in August then you are a well-earned music snob (which I applaud quite frankly – and join the club) but the only thing missing here is a Beatles reunion with Elvis and Jimi Hendrix opening.  Ok we could all add a few bands of our own to make it better (i.e., Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Blur, Pulp, etc) but for a mere $200 this is just about unfuckingbeatable.
