Photo Diary – Osheaga 2016

Day 1: The Osheaga people corral

{Day 1: The Osheaga people corral}

Back in February of this year, we found out that the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and RADIOHEAD were two of the bands front-lining this year’s Osheaga music festival. Two of our favorite bands!!!

We had actually passed up on a trip out to California three years previous, just before we found out the Red Hot Chili Peppers were set to headline Coachella, so I’ve personally been itching to attend a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert since. And Radiohead is just so close to our musical hearts! They’re my husband’s favorite band, and definitely one of mine as well. He was fortunate enough to have seen them live before, but I hadn’t yet! So we had to make Osheaga 2016 happen.

And we did! Within seconds of pitching the festival to my mom, she graciously agreed to watch our little man for three days so that we could attend it! (“Are you kidding? Of course I’ll watch my grandson!”)

Woohoo! Aaaand DONE. Festival bracelets purchased.

So here are some of our combined photos from Osheaga 2016, cellphone style!
