UPDATE: This year’s OVOFEST will have a OVO Bounce basketball summer league. The teams will be comprised of top local talent and some of the most exciting players from around the globe. The championship game will take place on Friday, August 1. There will also be a OVO Summit and that will take place on July 31st. It will welcome some of the brightest young minds Toronto has to offer to an educational conference facilitating enlightening conversation amongst notable personalities.
The audience will consist of our next generation of creative youth from the heart of Toronto, to offer a unique educational opportunity while creating a social network and support system necessary to make their dreams a reality.
“OVOFEST is a unique opportunity for us to both showcase what makes Toronto the incredible city the world is coming to discover, while simultaneously giving back to the place that made us who we are—offering a massive economic boost with over 7,000 tourists flocking to Toronto for the very first time, while commissioning taxi drivers, hotels, restaurants, and other businesses,” said Drex Jancar, Director of OVOFEST.
Drake is doing things big for the 5th annual OVO Fest, now calling upon OutKast to headline this year’s show. Taking place on August 3 & 4, Drizzy will once again welcome fans to his homeland for the yearly celebration at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.
Other performers have not yet been announced.
