The musician performed at the Montreal festival the next day (August 5) with her band Florence + The Machine, but got in the spirit of the festival early and headed side of stage to watch the Sheffield band close out the second day of the event.
Posting on her Instagram Story, Welch shared videos of her dancing with friends and headbanging to the likes of ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ and ‘Arabella’. Watch the videos below.

During her own band’s set at Osheaga yesterday, Welch performed tracks from her new album ‘High As Hope‘, as well as including ‘Sweet Nothing’, her 2012 collaboration with Calvin Harris. Watch fan-shot footage of her performance below.
Last month, Florence + The Machine covered Fleetwood Mac during a radio session. Performing for The Spectrum at SiriusXM Studios, the group delivered a stripped-back cover of ‘Silver Springs’.
‘High As Hope’ was released earlier this summer (June 29) and reached Number Two in the Official UK Albums Chart. It has since been nominated for the Hyundai Mercury Music Prize 2018, alongside Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino‘, amongst other British albums from the past 12 months.
In a three-star review of ‘High As Hope’, NME said: “More organic and natural, this is Florence laid bare. Free of too many bells, whistles and a contrived sense of scale, she’s free to be herself more so than ever before.”
