Episode 35: Exploring Osheaga, Canada’s coolest festival

Tune in to part 2 of Episode 35: 

00:30-5:01 Talk Show Host by Radiohead

05:40 We were at music festivals most of the weekends in July. We started with FVDED in the Park, followed up with Pemberton Music Festival to see Kehlani, and at the end of the month, flew to Montreal for Osheaga Music and Arts Festival.

7:00-8:50 We discuss our thoughts on the location of  Osheaga, which takes place at Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal, an island with views of the city centre of Montreal.

9:00-13:14 Brands have become such a huge part of the festival experience and at times it feels like you’re being accosted by marketers as you find your way between stages. We discuss the balance between art, commerce and music at Osheaga, and how brands like Virgin Mobile and Schick Hydro have found a way to make their marketing appealing to concert goers.

13:15-15:29 Osheaga makes art an integral part of the festival experience, and we discuss the various installations that we took in while at the festival.

16:56-20:11 Opera by Jazz Cartier

20:12-24:00 Girls, Women, Ladies by Clairmont the Second. Clairmont released Quest for Milk and Honey and it’s so powerful and timely and good.

24:09-28:24 Cawna Pt. 2 by Staasia Daniels. We pronounced Staasia incorrectly, it’s phonetically pronounced as Stay-Sia. She also just released a project titled Hidden Gems, a very smooth and sexy R&B effort.

30:03-35:10 We give our highlights from Day 1 of Osheaga, which included seeing The Underachievers, Flume and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

35:10-42:00 We recap Day 2 of the festival, and how familiarity kicks in, as you start to understand the layout of the land. We took in Kaytranada‘s set, as well as Best Coast and encountered our first scheduling conundrum between seeing Lana Del Rey and Future. We ended up seeing Lana Del Rey’s set and the Osheaga stage was a perfect fit for her, with fireworks going off during her dreamy performance.

43:15-51:12 Day 3 of Osheaga was definitely the hottest day of the festival. We were there midday for Skepta’s performance and then things cooled down for Grimes set. We were excited to see Disclosure but their set was cancelled due to travel and Radiohead took the stage early and enchanting fifty thousand people for over two hours.

52:21-55:50 Be Somebody by Clams Casino ft Asap Rocky and Lil B

56:10 A reminder that we’ve switched up our format to an extended once a month show. Our next show is scheduled for September 21st.

56:40 Duckwrth is gearing up to release his new project I’m Uugly and he released his new song Get Uugly and we love the video for it. It’s directed by Mancy Gant, and features Channel 3 doing the “Uugly dance” with Duckwrth. He’ll be in Vancouver on September 4th, as part of Anderson Paak and the “Free Nationals” tour.

58:28 We’ve been working super hard on our new wellness line Vellum Wellness. Sign up at vellumwellness.com to be the first to receive news and product samples.
