The Replacements reunion returns to Canada — where it began — this summer with a just-announced appearance at the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal, just the latest in what continues to be a festival-only affair for the reunited ‘Mats.
So far, following last year’s three Riot Fest gigs, the band is playing two Coachella shows this April, Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Music Festival in May and the Forecastle fest in Louisville, Ky., before the Osheaga slot. No further appearances have been announced.
At Osheaga, set for Aug. 1-3, the Replacements will share the stage with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde and fellow festival reunion act OutKast. Full ticket information is available at osheaga.com.

April 11: Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Indio, CA
April 18: Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Indio, CA
May 10: Shaky Knees Music Festival, Atlanta, GA
July 18-20: Forecastle Music Festival, Louisville, KY
