Virgin Mobile's got you covered at Osheaga



    From Chill Out Zones to Virgin Mobile Angels, fans will be blown away by
    way more than amazing music at Montréal's must-see music festival

    MONTREAL, Aug. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - As always, Virgin Mobile's got your back.
Along with the "killer" line-up at this weekend's Osheaga Music Festival,
presenting sponsor Virgin Mobile is making sure that a whole range of
unbeatable on-site experiences will blow music lovers away during Montréal's
hottest two-day music festival.
    Music is the heart and soul of the event, but for its first participation
at Osheaga, Virgin Mobile is kicking it up a notch. Over-heated music fans can
nab a treat from the Virgin Mobile Cool Down Cart or take a breather at the
Virgin Mobile Chill Out Zone, complete with comfy ottomans and misting fans.
Plus people can get their hands on great festival-only deals down at Virgin
Mobile's on-site store.
    "Anytime you're looking to chill out, put your feet up, and grab a cold
drink, we'll be there to look after you," says Andrew Bridge, Director Brand &
Communications, Virgin Mobile. "Plus, our Virgin Mobile Angels will be roaming
around taking photos of festival-goers and uploading them online. They've got
strict orders to make sure everyone is having a good time and they're giving
hugs away for free. So be prepared to get physical, because they're pretty
cute."
    The year's Osheaga will take over Parc-Jean Drapeau on Ile Ste-Hélène on
August 3 and 4. Including a huge range of musical genres and musical A-listers
like The Killers, Jack Johnson, Iggy & The Stooges, Broken Social Scene,
