Sled Island in Calgary has announced Feist, The Hold Steady, and Archers of Loaf for the festival. Other artists so far include: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Grimes, Timer Timbre, Andrew W.K., Thurston Moore, and Russian Circles. There’s going to be 200 acts overall so we’ll keep in the loop as they leak out.

Osheaga may be mum about their August 3-5 lineup, but that hasn’t stopped fake announcements and speculation about the lineup. For the record, there has been only one act officially confirmed — Young the Giant.
