Drake Announces Eighth Annual OVO Fest
And just like that, Drake's announced his eighth annual OVO Fest. Based on the headliners, it's definitely living up to its name. Check out the flyer for it up top.
This year's OVO Fest will take place on August 7 at Toronto's Budweiser Stage. Tickets for the event will be on sale here starting tomorrow (June 29).
The eighth iteration of Drizzy's annual music festival will find his OVO acts PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan, Dvsn and Roy Woods taking the stage. All of them have plenty of new-to-newish tracks to perform, too. Party's coming off the release of his four-track Colours 2 EP. This past December, Woods dropped his Nocturnal EP. PND just popped up on Majid Jordan's new song, "One I Want." All of their new sounds have been insanely dope.
Of course, we can probably expect there to be more than a few superstar special guests, especially considering Drizzy's friendship with Future, Young Thug, The Weeknd and many others. Plus, he's also squashed his beef with Tory Lanez. Either way, OVO Fest should be pretty lit.
Drake's announcement arrives a very short time after he stole the show at the 2017 NBA Awards on Monday (June 26). Hosting the Association's inaugural awards show, Drizzy used his comedic chops to roast just about everyone in attendance, and people loved it. One of his funniest bits came when he parodied Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and the critically acclaimed horror/comedy film Get Out simultaneously.
