In the age of the Internet, it’s refreshing to see massive groups of strangers come together for the sake of art and music. While there were no shortages of instagram photos or snapchats exchanged throughout the course of the festival, there was still an undeniable sense of community that underlined every aspect of the past three days. From the gorgeous setting, to the stellar art installations, brand-sponsored activity booths, and wonderful food truck options, the sea of people who migrated to Parc Jean-Drapeau for the weekend emitted an energy that was palpable to anyone who walked through the Osheaga gates.

So, while I could discuss which bands had the ‘best performance’, or who successfully pulled off the latest summer trends, I’ve decided instead to show you the people and places of Osheaga 2014 – a photo album, if you will, of diverse people who make the festival great. So while I believe that Jack White and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds had mind-blowing performances, that’s just my personal opinion. Maybe Skrillex was your favourite, or maybe J. Cole, Flume, or Half Moon Run stole the show for you. In any case, if you were there, you’ll have memories to last you at least till Osheaga 2015, and if you weren’t there, well then I won’t rub it in too much.

So without further ado, here are the people (and places) of Osheaga 2014 (Sponsored by Vitaminwater #brilliantworks):
