The official Osheaga after party starts at 11pm Friday night at Le Belmont, on St-Laurent Blvd.

http://www.facebook.com/events/348241095256012/

The first 100 who RSVP are awarded free entry :)


thanks for that! they changed it to 5$ reduced entry.
and thanks lala i thought it was for sure, i dont mind a bit of rain but all 3 days would be a bummer.

Is anyone else having trouble thinking of stuff to bring? Should i wear running shoes all weekend? I never been to a festival  before and really dont want to be underprepared!

Running shoes are comfortable but if it's hot you'll want to chop your feet off...also if you get stuck in a downpour they can get quite gross and soggy.  A good comfy pair of sandals always works well.

I knew it, thanks so much! My aunt went there for the Indy before and said it was crazy, the subway was JAM PACKED, and to bring running shoes and a knapsack. I really didnt want to bring a bag or running shoes but I think I'll do the bag. I think my feet can handle sandals, besides it looks better  8)

You have to be fest fashionable :) ...though if you reallly want to wear sneakers, you can bring flips flops in case they get wet but then you're lugging around wet stinky sneakers for the rest of the day :P

Haha i know i was thinking of this! I think im just going to bring a bag for a bottle of water, jacket, bug spray, and thats it cuz i really dont want to lug a heavy bag around. if it rains, my feet will get muddy and maybe ill wash them off in the river. apparently theres a big river and its pretty :)

Check the forecast ....Montreal is quite steamy in the summer so a jacket probably isn't necessary.  I got one of those disposable rain ponchos about the size of passport and weighs nothing just case of a heavy downpour.  I don't deal well with rain so it's perfect.

I guess i can get one of those, and yea i only wanted to bring one in case it rained. So maybe no bag after all! Thanks!

It's wise to bring a bag for sunscreen etc...just keep it as lightweight as you can. What seems somewhat light in the afternoon will be heavy by nightfall.

I'm going to warn you, last year they had a gigantic water hose that they sprayed over the crowd once in a while, that would essentially SOAK you. So you likely will get wet (this was at the main stage, btw) because they'll likely spray it if it's going to be as hot as it was last year, and it sounds like it is!. And you liiikely won't need bug spray, I don't remember there being any bugs there whatsoever last year. I have a pretty large purse that I just stuff everything in. It's kind of annoying but I think this year I'll bring less stuff to the fest itself! Oh, and the river is very pretty. :)

Umm, so, still working out how we're getting there... Turns out my bfs car is NOT good to drive to Montreal, and mine is tiny... But we'll work something out. Ugh.

Thanks so much for that! i am really allergic to mosquito bites, but bug spray rarely works anyway, so thats out! and im so happy they soak you hahaha that sounds sooo refreshing :) yayy pretty river :)

im taking a mega bus, its about 100$ round trip, but at least i dont have to worry about getting lost and i know ill get there on time... you should check if it departs from pei!

That would be cool if it did! It likely doesn't though, no one cares about our little island. :( Haha.
