Getting to Osheaga


View Larger Map

DIRECTIONS FROM MONTREAL

The best way to get to Osheaga is to take the Metro (Montreal’s subway system). Follow signs to the Yellow Line; Jean-Drapeau is the station located right at the gates of the festival.

We recommend you do NOT drive to the site, as it gets easily congested and may not be the fastest way out after the evening shows.

Metro: The Osheaga festival site is located right next to the Jean-Drapeau metro station (yellow line).  The STM operates Montreal’s metro (subway) system as well as an extensive bus network on the island of Montreal. Buying your return tickets on your way to the festival is a smart move to avoid lineups after the show. For more info about the STM, please click here

Have you purchased your fare card? 
 
OSHEAGA will soon get started! Over 125,000 fans will be heading to Parc Jean-Drapeau on July 31, August 1 and 2. And the best way of getting there is with public transit!
 
We recommend that you purchase your transit fares for the return trip to the festival in advance, making it easier for you to catch the métro after the show. That way, you’ll avoid waiting in line to buy your fare and you’ll get home faster.
 
A fare tailored to the event: 3 days for $16.25
 
Buy the special OSHEAGA fare card! Valid from 10 a.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, it will only cost you $16.25 to go to every concert. But remember, this special fare card will only be on sale on July 30 and 31. Look up our points of sale here

Car: We recommend taking the STM’s metro system to Osheaga, but if you must travel to Osheaga by car please be sure to carpool. Driving directions and parking information can be found on Parc Jean-Drapeau’s website here.

Parking:All parking at Parc Jean-Drapeau is regulated by Parc Jean-Drapeau/City of Montreal. All parking information can be found on Parc Jean-Drapeau’s website here.

Bicycle, Foot: Directions on how to reach Parc Jean-Drapeau by bicycle, and foot can be found here. Parc Jean-Drapeau offers bicycle parking near the festival site.

You can also take advantage of The Terminus: our secure and dedicated bicycle parking lot, steps away from the festival’s entrance. You can park your bicycle here for the day via our valet service, get some maintenance done by some pros from local bike shops and hang out as long as you’d like. Remember, we want you to get to and from the festival site as safely as possible so The Terminus will also serve as an area to relax and sober up post festival prior to leaving the site.
