Eminem to Headline Osheaga Music Festival

Slim Shady takes top billing at music showcase in Canada.

Published April 12, 2011

It’s going to be busy summer for Eminem. Fans of the hip hop superstar will have an opportunity to catch him performing at several dates in the coming months. Just added to the list is the 2011 Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montreal this July. 

Co-headliners Death Cab for Cutie, Elvis Costello and the Imposters and The Flaming Lips will join the multi-platinum rapper at the star-studded event. G.O.O.D Music’s Kid Cudi and Canadian rapper Shad will be the only other hip hop acts featured at the traditionally indie-rock show. 

The three-day event will take place July 29-31.

While no official tour is in sight for Slim Shady this year, the rap great will be kept busy headlining shorter dates. In June Em will be the main attraction at the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tennessee. The following month he’ll rock the stage at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, as well as the V festival in the UK.
