Osheaga drops 60 artists of 2017 lineup through memory card game

By February 23, 2017 No Comments

In addition to confirming that Foster the People will be playing this year's festival, Osheaga have taken it one step further by posting a memory card game on their website that gives clues to this year's lineup.

While playing the game, you have to flip over pairs of matching cards over the course of five rounds, with each matching card playing a song by the artist corresponding to the clue in the drawing. By the end of the game, more than 60 artists are essentially revealed. (Pro tip: if you left-click each card to save the image, the name of the artist is revealed in the filename.)
