    Gillett Entertainment Group, in collaboration with Greenland, Higher
Ground and MEG, are thrilled to announce the second edition of OSHEAGA
(pronounced O-SHE-A-GA), to be held on September 8 and 9, 2007 at the scenic
Parc Jean-Drapeau.
    Last year, over 25,000 festival goers were blown away by memorable
performances by the likes of The Flaming Lips and Ben Harper, and by the
overall high quality and diversity of the homegrown and international talents.
As it stands, the second edition already promises to give the first
installment a run for its money - and there are still many more artists to be
announced!
    The legendary Smashing Pumpkins will make their much anticipated return
to Montreal after a 7 year hiatus; hometown favourites Stars, Xavier Caféine
and Sam Roberts Band will showcase the best Montreal's vibrant music scene has
to offer; British rockers Placebo will bring a dose of their anthemic European
styling to the fest; rebellious soul songstress Amy Winehouse promises a
memorable performance; Swedish sensation Peter, Bjorn & John will shake it up
with their unique blend of indie pop; while fresh-faced Scottish export
Paolo Nutini is sure to kick up his "New Shoes" and a whole lot of pop for his
return to Montreal! Also on board are: Au Revoir Simone (USA), Adam Kesher
(FR) and Peter Von Poehl (FRA), as part of the deliciously eclectic MEG stage
line up.
    Just like last year, over 50 incredible bands will take over Osheaga
2007's 5 stages 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.
    On September 8 and 9, don't miss the OSHEAGA Music and Arts Festival, for
a 2 day jam packed whirlwind musical experience! For more detailed info,
