J. Cole, Big Sean, YG and More Will Perform at Drake’s 2015 OVO Fest
Drake announced the line-up for the 2015 OVO Fest. J. Cole plus his Dreamville artists Bass, Cozz and Omen will be joined by Big Sean, YG and Jeremih as performers. Drake tweeted out the weekend's full lineup of the two day concert, which features a extra day that includes Kevin Hart (presumably a new stop on Hart's comedy tour). On the last day, Drizzy along with special guest will close out the show. The special guests that came out in the past have been Eminem, TLC, Kanye West, OutKast, Diddy, Ma$e and many more. OVO Fest will be held from Aug. 1-3 at Air Canada Centre and Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. Tickets go on sale March 20. This is the six year for OVO Fest, which takes place on the weekend of Caribana in Toronto.
Last year OVO Fest was nuts. It included the inclusion of a clothing line, a pop-up shop and a basketball summer league and summit. Drake and his rival Chris Brown planned to perform on stage together however the R&B singer had problems entering Canada due to his arrest record. You can read the recap to last year's OVO Fest here.
In other news, the "6 God" may be in a legal battle with the producers of the film Homecoming: The Lost Footage, a movie that chronicles Drake’s 2009 show at the Sound Academy in Toronto shortly before he signed with Young Money. Mark Berry, the chairman of Attack Media who is also listed as a co-executive producer for the film, may look into legal action after the Toronto rapper announced publicly that he and OVO have nothing to do with the film.
“I think he thought nothing was going to happen with the film,” Berry said. "It's an issue of someone not honoring a contractual commitment to another person.”
