And it’s the last day of Osheaga — a big one for the mega music fest at Parc Jean-Drapeau, with Radiohead headlining, Grimes, M83, Disclosure, Mac Miller, Dead Obies, Leon Bridges and le Matos. Of course the festival is sold out, but if you’re desperate and have a few hundred bucks to spend, a scalper outside Parc Jean-Drapeau metro can help you out.
The afternoon music program at Mile End’s party park Marché des Possibles begins with a First Nations celebration with Timothy Armstrong, Barbara Diabo, Daybi and Beatrice Deer performing between 1 and 3 p.m., and a Smiths quiz presented by the Music’s Mitosis podcast followed by a performance by local Smiths cover the Smiffs (who are pretty great, we can attest). See the full programming (including morning fitness classes and a list of vendors) here. 5635 St-Dominique, 1:30–8 p.m., free
