From the world of electronic dance music, there is much to whet the appetite. Dance titans Kygo, Oliver Heldens, Robin Schulz and Hudson Mohawke will be touching down for the weekender, while there's is also much to appease the underground with Toronto boys Art Department making an appearance alongside the likes of Ten Walls, Dusky, Cashmere Cat and Bob Moses.
Celebrating a decade in action this year, Osheaga commenced the line-up release with an engrossing little app entitled "The Road to Osheaga", which sees users play as characters "Oshee" and "Aga," where winning points earns artist names. An innovative approach from what has become one of the most highly recognized music festivals across the globe.
