Weekly Mixtape: Osheaga Dreaming

The end of winter is almost like Christmas for indie music lovers. Music festivals’ lineups get revealed and we keep waiting for the day we’ll finally receive the gift we soon hope to unwrap in Montreal: the Osheaga festival. From year to year, varied lists of musicians are presented, sometimes surprising but always terrific, thanks to big names but also emerging local and national artists. We’ll help you learn more about the 2013 edition with this week’s mixtape. Side A features music from more well-known bands that will put you into the mood as you’re getting more and more excited about Osheaga and start planning your perfect music weekend. Side B provides songs from musicians that are worth discovering and that should get more recognition.
