This year (2016 ), I was nominated for the 2016 Osheaga Arts and Music Festival. It’s a multi-day, indie, music festival that is held annually in the summer at Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène in Montreal. I hope that you stopped by the Osheaga Arts Village to see what local artists created for the festival.
It was very exciting to be a part of this amazing festival once again this year working with En Masse Pour Les Masses on some bigger and even better installation works! Check out the visual artists line-up. It was great – Kirsten McCrea, Peru Dyer Jalea, Gracia Dyer Jalea, Olivier Bonnard, Jorden David Doody and so many more!? Fred Caron killin’ it once again.
Osheaga has established itself as the most important festival of its genre in Canada. It attracts over 100 bands and over 135,000 music lovers from North America and Europe last year. Osheaga is also considered one of the best music events in the world in line with Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
Pictured here is the mural I had the pleasure of doing for Osheaga. On the flip side – AIR element and celestial mapping done with nails and line wire in hot pink, of course.
It was an amazing experience with so many talented artists. A huge thanks to @fredifredfred for the opportunity, to @kway_official, @neweracap @newerator, @vanscanada for the awesome gear, to my boyz @earth_crusher, @peru143 for helping me reach the high spots and to master chef @chefchuckhughes for feeding us in Artist World all weekend- you put together an impressive spread.
The Osheaga music festival Montreal was an unforgettable time!
