It’s December and I haven’t given any thought to a company holiday party in months. For that same reason, there’s no point why we should even be considering music festivals in 2021 either. Organizers of Montreal’s Osheaga seem to know something that we all don’t know. Announced today, Post Malone, Cardi B and Foo Fighters will headline next year’s summer festival provided that it doesn’t get moved.
The statement says organizers “have been working relentlessly behind the scenes to create the ideal circumstances for Osheaga to move ahead without a hitch.”
Honestly, how, when new information is being provided every day and both cases and deaths are on the rise. Should the festival not move forward for whatever reason, refunds will be issued. Reading this announcement though just seems like a whole lot of work for something that isn’t a given. We love music festivals. On Yow Yow! we share many lineup announcements during winter – spring, but these will be the last things that are deemed safe in the current environment.
