Drake Announces Return of OVO Fest

  /  05.13.2022

OVO Fest is back.

Drake has announced the return of his signature festival. Last night, the 6 God joined Dave as a special guest during the U.K. rapper’s show at Rebel in Toronto. Before leaving the stage, he told the hometown crowd that he plans to bring back OVO Fest this year.

“I love you with all my heart. They let the city back open, so I will see you at OVO Fest soon,” he said to cheers.

It’s been three years since OVO Fest was last held in Toronto, when B2K headlined and Drake brought out surprise guests including Cardi B, Chris Brown, and Meek Mill. It was canceled in the wake of the pandemic. He has yet to announce 2022 dates, but the event is typically held in early August.

Since its inception in 2010, OVO Fest has featured appearances from hip-hop and R&B’s biggest stars including Eminem, JAY-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, and Kendrick Lamar.

During Thursday night’s show, Drake also praised Dave, who stars on the Drake-produced Netflix series “Top Boy.”

“This guy right here is a once in a generation talent,” he said. “Whether he’s rapping, pouring out his heart, whether he’s turning all the way up, whether he’s playing the piano, whether he’s acting in our show, ‘Top Boy,’ I promise you this guy right here is a one of one.”
