OutKast and Drake to Headline 5th Annual OVO Fest

OVO Fest 2014

OutKast is bringing their comeback tour to Canada. André 3000 and Big Boi will headline Drake’s 5th Annual OVO Fest this summer.

The two-day festival will take place on August 3 and 4 at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, Drake announced via his OVO blog.

The Atlanta duo will take the stage on Sunday along with some special guests, while October’s Very Own performs for his hometown fans on Monday with his own surprise lineup.

Tickets for the Live Nation-presented concert go on sale February 21.

Last year’s OVO Fest featured surprise performances from Kanye West, Diddy, Ma$e, TLC, and more.

Prior to OVO Fest, OutKast will kick off their reunion at Coachella in April and play over 40 festivals throughout the world including New York’s Governors Ball and London’s Wireless Festival.

    Lew:Mashing up half a dozen different songs into a new thing doesn’t invvole vision or creativity?”Too much” wasn’t a compliment to the video: I thought it was a little too hyperactive and find it difficult to watch. Die Antwoord does nothing for me at all. Azealia Banks might be okay, though they’re both too repetitive (musically, if not lyrically) to catch my interest much. But then, musical taste is more a function of how old you are and who you hang out with than anything, so you not liking Titus Jones or me not liking Die Antwoord really doesn’t say anything beyond, you don’t like Titus Jones and I don’t like Die Antwoord. I wouldn’t say Titus Jones is particularly representative of my musical taste, but I do like what he manages to do with pretty shitty starting material. (In fact, the straw-into-gold aspect is the main reason I care about mashups at all. The hey!-you-got-your-chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter aspect is most of the rest of the reason.)More representative of my tastes, not that you need to care: Lyle Lovett, Tori Amos, Radiohead, Cowboy Junkies, Beck, Janelle Monae, Massive Attack, Laurie Anderson, PJ Harvey, Aimee Mann.
