Osheaga 2013 Festival Line-Up Announced: Cure, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix & More

The Cure, Mumford & Sons and Phoenix are the big names confirmed set for this year's Osheaga festival Aug. 2-4 at Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau on Ile Ste-Helene.

According to a Twitter post from the official Osheaga account other confirmed acts include New Order, the Lumineers, Vampire Weekend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Hot Chip and Tegan and Sara. The bill is also fleshed out by Flogging Molly, Big Boi, Explosions in the Sky, Gaslight Anthem, Beach House, Ben Howard and Father John Misty. Meanwhile the Canadian component includes Hollerado, Diamond Rings, Hannah Georgas and A Tribe Called Red.

Before officially releasing the lineup at 8 p.m. Eastern Monday evening organizers gave cryptic clues the last few days on Osheaga's Facebook page and Twitter site with a photo of a French coin dated 1901 being displayed. The photo immediately had many correctly surmising Phoenix would be performing. However, other photos of the Olsen Twins from "Full House," a deep fryer filled with french fries and a photo of Osheaga's mascots in a Knight Rider-like car resulted in wide ranging guesses.

Festival tickets go on sale this Friday (March 15) at noon Eastern with three-day general admission packages priced at $235 with reserved seating access packages set at $395. If you're looking for the VIP treatment there are also two options: The Osheaga Experience with various perks runs $699 while the The Osheaga Experience (with reserved seating) will set you back $1,099. All prices include service charges and fees with complete information on the festival site. Packages are available through or by phone at 1-855-310-2525. Single day tickets will go on sale at a later date. No e-tickets will be issued. Twenty additional acts will also be confirmed at a later date.
