This year was the 6th time I attended Osheaga. New site, new bands, new friends, same incredible weekend. Minus the rain all. damn. day. on Friday.
Instead of words, I did visuals; I put together this video I filmed over the weekend. It’s my first completed and published Premiere Pro and After Effects project. It doesn’t encapulate all the shared feelings of the weekend, but it’s a start in an arts field I’m really excited about. You can also see all the artists I checked out below.
Cage The Elephant
Foster The People
It’s been just over half a year since my last ‘New Artist Discoveries’ post, so this one is long overdue. With only a month left of summer and the bulk of festival season done, there’s been a hell of a lot of new artists to discover. Osheaga is this weekend and I finally put Catfish and The Bottlemen on pause to give the lineup a proper listen through and build my dream schedule (which you can never see all of anyway). ¬†This post isn’t about Osheaga artists (that’s coming after the festival!) but it is about some other artists I’ve recently discovered and wanted to share. Instead of background facts, I’ve decided to include how I discovered the artist to give you an idea of some of the ways I find new music as well as some related artists to put you in the mood.
