    MONTREAL, June 14 /CNW Telbec/ - London's reining indie rock kings, BLOC
PARTY, are confirmed to play Osheaga on September 9th and will be supporting
their 2007 release, A Weekend in the City. Their last Montreal appearance (on
March 27th at the Metropolis) was one of the spring's hottest tickets (and
sold out instantly to many fans' chagrin). Known for their intense, and not to
mention incredibly danceable performances, Bloc Party come as one of our
proudest new additions to the 2007 lineup!
    PASCALE PICARD, already topping charts with her single "Gate 22" and
lauded as one of the year's "hottest discoveries" by local Quebec media will
raise many eyebrows as she performs tracks from her debut album Me, Myself &
Us on September 9th. The daring young songwriter deftly weaves modern folk-pop
colors through alternative textures. See the phenomenon as she deserves all of
your attention!
    "Within this year's lineup there are 12 artists who have sold out their
last Montreal performances, so we're really happy to be able to bring all
these artists to a bigger venue and give people a chance to see some amazing
performances. Also, this will be Amy Winehouse's first time in Montreal, and
you can't look through a music mag these days without seeing her; it's been
two years since Interpol was last here; Feist is garnering one rave review
after the other; and The Smashing Pumpkins have been tearing it up in Europe
since they've been back in action!" Osheaga's founder, Nick Farkas, has noted.
    This year, over 50 incredible bands will take over Osheaga 2007's 5
stages for a two day jam packed whirlwind musical experience set upon the
breath-taking backdrop of Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau, Ile Sainte-Hélène
(accessible by Metro Jean-Drapeau) - located just 10 minutes from downtown
Montreal.
    For the second year, the Art Tent will offer local and international
artists a special platform allowing for one of a kind, intimate artistic and
musical performances. The complete lineup will be revealed soon...
