Arcade Fire Named as Day One Headliner of Osheaga Festival Replacing Foo Fighters

The American rock band, Foo Fighters, cancelled all of their concert dates last month, including their July 29th show at Osheaga, following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Hawkins died during a South American tour with the rock band. He was 50.

The music festival says the Montreal-based band, Arcade Fire, are a fitting addition to their 15th anniversary lineup, noting the “hometown heroes” put on a memorable Osheaga set in 2010.

Arcade Fire will now headline the first day of the popular outdoor festival, which runs until July 31 at Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau. Other headliners include rapper A$AP Rocky on the second night and singer Dua Lipa on the final night.

“Our thoughts remain with our friends in the extended Foo Fighters family in this tremendously difficult time”, Osheaga founder Nick Farkas said Thursday in a release.
