Radiohead Expected to Headline Osheaga


The 2015 edition of Montreal's Osheaga Music and Arts Festival was one for the books. For their 10th edition, the Evenko-organized fest pulled out the big guns, recruiting alumni performers Florence + The Machine, Kendrick Lamar (featuring special guest Yasiin Bey) and The Black Keys as headliners. It was truly one for the books. With such an amazing edition of Osheaga fans wonder, could they top said lineup in 2016? If the information we just uncovered proves to be true, things might be off to a good start...

According to Consequence of Sound, Radiohead are planning to tour the festival circuit this year, including a few of the more popular fests in the North American scene. The article claims that the UK band will perform at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and of course, Osheaga in the summer of 2016.

As far as Osheaga confirming this speculation, the festival released a statement claiming, “We are currently working on finishing up the lineup. We should be announcing shortly.”

So far, Radiohead have 3 confirmed tour dates, all in Europe. They are expected to release a new album in 2016.

As for Osheaga, other acts rumored to perform at the 11th edition of the festival include LCD Soundsystem, Joanna Newsom, Pearl Jam and others. Keep posted to for all of your Osheaga news and rumors!
