Music-loving out-of-towners take note:  in collaboration with  Osheaga, VIA Rail is offering 50% discounts on adult regular fares when you book a one-way or round trip to Montreal. Bookings must be made online at least 3 days prior to departure, and travel must be completed between July 27 and August 5, 2010. This gives you time to sneak in a few MEG Montreal Festival shows (such as Birdy Nam Nam, Holy Ghost! and Black Strobe) before Osheaga on July 31st and August 1st.

This year’s Osheaga boasts the best line-up yet, with Arcade Fire, Weezer, Snoop Dogg, the Black Keys, the National, Pavement, Beach House, Metric and many more.
