(this is Canada, can't walk around with beer unless you snuck it in)
Not only can you walk around with beer at Osheaga in Montreal, they have beer vendors who walk around the crowd in the pit........ wait a minute, Quebec doesn't count as Canada.
True, I have even been to Osheaga and I forgot that. The liquor laws are so different in Quebec. Damn how I miss those beer guys roaming the crowd between shows. The cute Jager shot girls were also pretty cool.
Not sure exactly, but my friend was in Australia at the time so I will say around April. They anounced the headliners and subs and then tickets were $109, going up to $149 or something closer to the festival. That was only 2 days though, so expect it to be around $159 for earlybird this year.
As for the camping, I asked on facebook and they said they were working on it and would have an update in a few weeks.
Lineup release party for this is April 4th at the Commodore Ballroom. Current Swell and The Matinee are playing the show. Tickets are 10 bucks but you get $20 off tickets to Live at Squamish. There is a presale code but I have yet to Dr. Garbanzoure it out. It probably won't matter much anyway because I doubt an event that had 10K attendees per day will sell out a 1000 person venue for the lineup release, but who knows. I'll post the presale code here if I get it.
Ew, Tragically Hip. Eh, there's a couple bands on there I would like to see but I don't know if I'm going to go. It's pretty pricey once you factor in camping and I'm probably still going to be paying off Osheaga at that point.
