Back-to-School Festival

OUMF continues to dare with a renewed programming to celebrate its 8th edition

For the last eight years, Montrealer’s have celebrated Back-To-School in a festive and vibrant ambiance. Throughout the years, OUMF has clearly established itself as a staple in the landscape of Montreal Back-to-School festival with its signature multidisciplinary programming.

This year again, there will be several new add-ons, such as the Block Party zone, curated and conceptualized by the multi-talented artist PONY, where you will find temporary art installations, eclectic music lineup, pop-up shops, a bar and much more. This new space will undoubtedly be a showstopper that you won’t want to miss.

While there will be a healthy dose of new to the 2018 programming, our loyal fans can still look forward to a signature musical lineup, curated by M For Montréal, that will kick start the city right in time for Back-To-School.

The Desjardins 360d stage will feature an even more diverse programming this year, starting on Thursday September 6th with an electro influenced night curated by ÎLESONIQ and sure to turn Saint-Denis street into a giant dance floor. On the following day, the stage will be blessed by the one and only Ghostface Killah, member of the iconic rap group Wu-Tan Clan, who will display his mastery of the mic for the loving pleasure of his legion of Montreal fans.

Finally, there will be no shortage of energy on the Saturday, courtesy of fame homegrown group Dead Obies with VNCE Carter & Mike Shabb and friends who will close-out the festival in style. Also gracing the main stage this year: Lost + White-B, Obia Le Chef, Rowjay, Maky Lavender, Kris The $pirit and more!

Not to be outdone, the Découverte Stage is sure to please music lovers and onlookers with an impressive lineup featuring: La Fourmilière, Meryem Saci, Marie-Gold, KIZABA, Jeunes & Ambitieux, End of the Weak, OUMF GOT TALENT multidisciplinary contest for students and the legendary WORDUP! BATTLES.

Once more, street art, sports and gaming activities will complement the on-site experience of festival goers with several new highlights like: House of Bounce, The Van Hornies, Hula Hoop, Double Corde, Simon Dragon et les maîtres du feu, a free outdoor Yoga session presented by lululemon and much more.

Finally, OUMF’s faithful will be happy to hear the return of classics like the Gaming Circuit, OUMF TA RUE presented by Deserres, Student 5 à 7, les Nuits OUMF and of course the several advantages and prizes that come with getting the OUMF in 360 bracelets offered by our presenting sponsor Desjardins 360d.

In short, this 8th edition promises to be out of this world, culturally delicious and memorable.
