2013 Osheaga Lineup Announced

After weeks of anticipation and speculation, the 2013 Osheaga lineup was announced this evening. And people are excited!

The acts that I am most excited to see include:

10) The Lumineers
9) Tegan and Sara
8) Jimmy Eat World
7) Ben Howard
6) Vampire Weekend
5) Alt-J
4) Two Door Cinema Club
3) Phoenix
2) Ellie Goulding
1) Mumford & Sons

I'm most excited to see Mumford & Sons. I was considering traveling to Simcoe (Ontario) to see them play the Northfolk County Festival. However, this show will be closer and (possibly) more convenient for me. The only downside to seeing Mumford & Sons play Osheaga as opposed to the Northfolk County Festival is that Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros are not scheduled to play.

Although there are a few acts that I'm excited to see, I am not overly impressed with the lineup. I was expecting more bigger acts. Last year, I only attended the last day of the festival. This year, I was planning on attending all three days of the festival. However, I am thinking that I might not get the full festival pass, after all. I might just stick with last year's plan and attend the one day where the most bands I want to see are playing.

What are you excited to see at this year's Osheaga?


  1. I was sooo excited for the Osheaga lineup to be announced but was disappointed a little, expected there would be more and bigger! Although, I'm definitely excited to see Vampire Weekend, Two Door Cinema Club, and Ellie Goulding. I've never really listened to Mumford & Sons to be honest (don't kill me!) but know that no matter what, the festival experience will have me loving pretty much all the bands.

    I don't know if you're really into EDM or not but if you are, the Escapade mf is shaping up to be extremely impressive. I'll be broke by end of summer between Escapade, Bluesfest and Osheaga. Already bought Osheaga tix and booked hotel! eek!


    1. Hi Katelyn,

      Thanks for your comment!

      Mumford and Sons is worth checking out. It's fun, feel good music... Although if you have no interest in them, you'll be missing the huge crowds at Osheaga (which isn't a bad thing). I'm debating whether or not to get the pass this year...

      I did hear about the lineup at Escapade and am wondering if I should go this year... As for Bluesfest, I volunteer every year so I don't need to pay for the shows. It's definitely a win-win: I meet cool people and I see shows for free!

      Talk soon,
