Female-fronted headlining acts at festivals are scarce these days. However, Quebec’s Osheaga aims to provide an abundance of ladies singing loudly and proudly during the 3-day festival. See below for our picks on the women of rock acts set to hit the stages including Sunday night headliner Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine. The ladies at the forefront include national and international acts like Kali Uchis from Colombia, English – Albanian popstar Dua Lipa, and Canadian indie band Alvvays led by Molly Rankin.
Included in this year’s program is a campaign to curb harassment with the festival inviting The Hirondelles, trained women providing on the spot, mobile support for those in need or experiencing harassment of any kind.
This year’s festival will take place at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal on August 3rd – 5th, passes available now https://www.osheaga.com/en/passes
