Drake Announces OVO Fest Lineup: A$AP Rocky + 2 Chainz + More
Drake is almost done with his Club Paradise Tour but he’s saving his best performance for his beloved hometown of Toronto. The rapper-crooner is set to host his third annual OVO Festival on Aug. 5 at the Molson Amphitheatre.
On Sunday, Drizzy tweeted his line-up of performers: New York rapper A$AP Rocky, Atlanta rhyme-spitter 2 Chainz and fellow Canadian singer The Weeknd. Tickets for the OVO Fest go on sale on June 9 via Live Nation.
“Bringing together the 3rd Annual OVO Fest is such a milestone for me,” said Drake. “A lot has happened over the last three years — a journey that I’m so grateful for — but it’s always coming home and performing for my hometown that means the most. This year, we’re going to bring it just like we do every year-with high energy and music at its best.”
The YMCMB superstar has made the OVO fest the must-see summer event in Canada. Last year’s event featured performances from headliners Rick Ross and The Weeknd. Drake also had a few tricks up his sleeve, treating fans to surprise guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Nas, J. Cole and Stevie Wonder.
We can’t imagine what kind of surprises Drake is going to bring to this year’s event. Maybe a ‘Take Care’ duet with Rihanna? HYFR!
