Osheaga has announced who will be appearing at Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau this summer. The major outdoor festival announced headliners SZA, Green Day and Noah Kahan last fall, and now it's revealed which artists will share the stage with those stars. Alt-rock band Smashing Pumpkins, French electronic duo Justice, Irish singer-songwriter Hozier, Canadian indie rockers Alvvays, and British grime rapper Skepta are among the top-line names added to the stacked festival lineup.

The festival also added rising artists like Reneé Rapp, star of the new Mean Girls movie and recent SNL musical guest; Tyla, the South African singer who's been climbing the charts with "Water"; and British singer Raye, who had a big hit last year with "Escapism."

The lineup is a mix of genres and eras, bringing together artists from thirty years of popular music. The Friday lineup alone is a journey through three decades of rock and indie music, featuring '90s-formed bands like Sleater-Kinney and Blonde Redhead, 2000s indie rock group Two Door Cinema Club and newer rock acts like Cam Kahin.

Kahin also forms part of the strong Canadian contingent in the festival's lineup, alongside Alvvays, viral singer and Juno nominee Talk, hip-hop artists Myst Milano. and Cadence Weapon, Ontario blues duo Blue Stones, Montreal punks No Waves, and more.

Alvvays played the festival previously in 2018, but this marks the band's first time as a top-line act at Osheaga, following the success of their 2022 album Blue Rev and a Grammy nomination last fall. In 2018, they had a 4pm set time, but it's likely they'll be taking the stage in the evening this time around.

"The model for our festival has always been about strength of lineup from the beginning to the end," Osheaga co-founder Nick Farkas, told Billboard Canadalast fall. "Whenever we see an artist that plays early and then eventually ends up headlining, that's kind of always been our goal, to elevate artists and really develop younger talent."

AP Dhillon Drops Off Coachella's Second Weekend

The Punjabi-Canadian star has faced backlash in Indian media and on social media for his guitar smash on weekend one, but the festival says he's cancelling due to scheduling conflicts.

AP Dhillon is leaving the California desert behind. Coachella announced that the Punjabi-Canadian star will not appear at the festival's second weekend as planned, citing scheduling conflicts. The festival announced it in a follow up tweet to one announcing that rapper Kid Cudi has been added.

While Dhillon's first-weekend performance was well-received by the Coachella crowd and many of his supporters, he's also had some backlash due to how he closed his set, which has been widely covered by media in India.
