OSHEAGA 2012 in Montreal! Tell me all about it!

I'm planning on buying tickets to OSHEAGA in Montreal.
Osheaga, which sounds awesome and should always be in caps, "is a unique and eclectic music and arts festival staged in the breath-taking environs of Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène." Truth is, I hardly know anything about this festival. I've also never been to Quebec, Montreal, or most of the Northeast, so any information is helpful.
1. Do tickets sell out quickly? The tickets went on sale today and I'd hate to miss it, but...
2. I may have other obligations during the festival -- do these tickets hold resale value? I mean, if the answer to the first question is "BUY TICKETS NOW OH GOD", then I think I'm good on this front. I just don't want to be stuck with a $225 ticket that will only sell back for a fraction of the price on stubhub/etc.
3. Where to stay in Montreal? I found some previous Osheaga threads (namely this one http://bit.ly/GLdh2G ) that answer this question, but any more suggestions are appreciated. They're will probably be three of us from the states traveling from CT/VT by some means. We've done a few festivals together in the US, but none of us have been to Montreal. If we're able, we'll couchsurf.
4. What's the enforcement of cannabis use/drug use in Montreal like? I realize everybody probably has a different answer for this, but might as well throw this question in, as it is a music festival.
That's all I've got. Tell me more about Osheaga!
