The second coming of Lorde

Lorde is returning to North America and headlining Osheaga, Montreal’s famed and adored music festival.

The New Zealand singer’s arrival puts her atop the lineup with fellow superstars Muse and The Weeknd, marking Lorde’s second coming to the fest.

The last time Lorde passed through Canada was nearly three years ago and she remembers the trip fondly.

“I always have a good time,” Lorde says expressing her love of touring the nation.

Among Lorde’s treasured memories, a special stop in Toronto stands out.

In June of 2014, the 20-year-old reigned over the city and delivered a double knock-out performance at the MuchMusic Video Awards where she claimed the honor of Best International Video for her No.1 hit single “Royals.”

“That was cool,” Lorde looks back. “Very chill. Nice energy, nice vibe. All the people were insane and so loud. I liked it.”

While traveling the world, Lorde says she hoards memories to return home with and another memorable moment in Canada happens to make the shortlist of her favorites.

“We played somewhere in New York and we got to Niagara Falls at like 7 a.m.,” she remembers. “Me and my band mates tumbled out of the car delirious from doing the border crossing and not sleeping.”

What Lorde saw next remains etched in her mind.

“The falls were frozen,” she swoons. “It was magical.”

Speaking of spellbinding, if we get back to the magic that is Osheaga, adding to its glory and joining Lorde on this year’s bill are Father John Misty, Foster the People, George Ezra, MGMT, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, The Shins, Tove Lo, Vance Joy and Canada’s own Tegan and Sara among many more.

Passes for Osheaga are now on sale and are known to sell-out fast. So don’t wait too long and miss your chance at being a part of what will be, as it is every year, an unforgettable experience.

The 12th edition of Osheaga runs August 4, 5 and 6. Click here for passes, full artist lineup and additional info.
