Drake Announces OVO Fest Lineup

Drake

Drake’s OVO Fest is coming back to Canada for the third year in a row, and he’s bringing some new friends along with him. The Young Money rapper has announced the lineup for this year’s show.

The concert will take place on August 5 at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in his hometown of Toronto, with performances by A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, and Drizzy himself. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 9.

“Bringing together the 3rd Annual OVO Fest is such a milestone for me,” said Drake. “A lot has happened over the last three years—a journey that I’m so grateful for—but it’s always coming home and performing for my hometown that means the most. This year, we’re going to bring it just like we do every year-with high energy and music at its best.”

Last year’s festival included performances from Rick Ross and The Weeknd, with special guests Nas, Lil Wayne, J. Cole, and Stevie Wonder.

Drake’s “Club Paradise” tour with J. Cole, 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka, Meek Mill, and French Montana is winding down, and will wrap June 17 in Boston.

    No clue why people like 2 Chainz. They say he has good punchlines but let’s face it, dude cannot rap.
