Drake’s OVO Fest Cancels First Night After Frank Ocean Pulls Out

Frank Ocean

Just a few days away from the fourth annual OVO Fest (curated by Drake and his October’s Very Own team) hitting Toronto, the two-day concert is suddenly downsizing to just one after news broke that Frank Ocean—one of the first day’s performers—would no longer be able to hit the stage. According to Billboard, last week Ocean “suffered a tear on his vocal cord last week, resulting in the cancellation of an Australian tour,” but since then the crooner has gone on to cancel several upcoming tour dates, including his appearance at the OVO Fest. James Blake, who was initially scheduled to perform on the same day as Ocean, will now perform on the festival’s only remaining day, August 5th, alongside Drake, Wale and several special guests. We wish Frank a speedy recovery.
