When: July 31th-August 2nd
Where: Montreal, Quebec
Why Go: The 10th anniversary of Canada's premiere festival boasts an internationally beloved lineup, with the Black Keys and Florence and the Machine leading the 100-act pack in Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau. Thanks to the city's temperate summer, Osheaga's a good place to catch critical darlings, next-big-things and radio-friendlies without sweating it all out too much. Its organizers also work to integrate the visual arts, and past installations have included an igloo made of guitar amps – can't buy that at Urban Outfitters.
Must-See Acts: Kendrick Lamar, Florence and the Machine, the Black Keys, Weezer, Alt-J, FKA Twigs, St. Vincent, Run the Jewels, Nas, First Aid Kit, Desaparecidos, Action Bronson, George Ezra, Interpol
