There is currently 17 days, 20 hours, 21 minutes and 34 seconds until the 3 days worth of musical chaos begins. Osheaga officially begins August 3rd and ends on August 5th. Seeing as this is one of the bigeest events of the summer i would hope that everyone attending will be prepared for anything. Let me start this off proper. DO NOT WEAR NICE SHOES. Rock some old Vans just like Lil B, some beat up Nikes, or if you have some fake Jordan or Nike heat then this is your time to shine. Sandals will not fly at this event, unless you like crushed toes. Moving on, you want to wear a crazy wild shirt, zebra patterns, tye-dye, giraffe print, neon colours and of course a cement print shirt would keep every sneakerhead happy. Why? Because your friends will be able to find you in a flash. Along with security, so stay out of trouble. Pants wont fly here either. Shorts, bathing suits and Kilts only. NO SPEEDOS PEOPLE, ITS 2012. Other essentials for this event include, sunglasses to hide those bloodshot eyes. A nice bucket hat for 360 head coverage from those heavy rays, and a water bottle that can be hung from your belt loop or bag of choice. As for the bag of choice. A heavy backpack might not work here, this might be the time that you wanna whip out your fanny pack from Florida vacation in 1997. Think about it, it's small, fits around your waist, and can be stuffed full of your favorite pasttime. The last item, which is more important than clothes. SUNBLOCK, you don't wanna get burned out there, it will be hard to match your outfits with all of that red.
