Osheaga Unveils Lineup Through Mobile App
As cool as Bonnaroo’s phone-in-for-a-name lineup unveiling was, the Osheaga Music Festival just took things up a few notches by allowing fans to reveal its performers through a mobile app.
In The Road to Osheaga, gamers are encouraged to collect coins as they travel to the festival. Whenever a birthday cake pops up and is collected by the player, an Osheaga performer is unveiled.
Through the game, we’ve learned that The Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Florence + The Machine, St. Vincent, Alt-J, The Decemberists, Hot Chip, Weezer, Nas, Tyler the Creator, Interpol, The Kills, Caribou, Run the Jewels, Future Islands, The War on Drugs, Father John Misty, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, The Avett Brothers, Of Monsters and Men, Brand New, Tove Lo, Charli XCX, Gary Clark Jr., Action Bronson, ScHoolboy Q, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Young the Giant, Patrick Watson, Twin Shadow, First Aid Kit, Toro y Moi, Philip Selway, MS MR, Viet Cong, Alvvays, Slyvan Esso, Milky Chance, Marina and the Diamonds, Raury, Strand of Oaks, Glass Animals, San Fermin, and Young Fathers, will be on stage at Osheaga 2015.
Even though you now know most of the performers, it is still worth playing the game. Explains Osheaga: “The top 10 leaderboard scores will win a pair of festival passes and if you finish in first place, we’ll get you to the festival no matter where you’re from in the world!”
The festival runs from July 31-August 2 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec. The full lineup will be confirmed on March 24. Tickets will go on sale that day at 12pm EST.
