Held every August on ?le Sainte-H?l?ne, the former site of Expo 67, Osheaga is Montreal’s biggest music festival?a weekend of over 100 musical acts and countless parties that embodies Montreal summer at its most delirious. New York-based photographer Hannah Sider joined SSENSE menswear buyer Alix Rutsey to chronicle three days of Osheaga madness.

Part of the AFI 100 Years... series, AFI's 100 Years...100 Stars is a list of the top 50 greatest screen legends in American film history, which included 25 male and 25 female stars. The list was unveiled by the American Film Institute on June 15, 1999, in a CBS special hosted by Shirley Temple, with 50 current actors making the presentations. The top stars of their respective sexes are Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. They starred together in the classic adventure film The African Queen, for which Bogart won his only Oscar.
On Friday Hannah and I go to Apt. 200 to see No Vacancy Inn. Theophilus London shows up before his set down the street at ?cole Priv?e. It’s very cool to see the community that’s developing in the city. Everyone is super supportive of each other, but for a long time it was kept within the confines of Montreal. That’s changing now. People are coming to the city and seeing all the cool stuff that’s happening.
We dip out quickly to go see Tommy Kruise at Le Belmont. He’s in the private basement with 20 skater boys and 200 beers, about to go upstairs and jump on the decks. I grab some portraits of Jamal Smith, who I saw win the Dime skate competition the last time I was in Montreal.
