Drake OVO Fest 2013

Drake will drop OVO Fest when Drake wants (i.e. now)

Thanks Drake. Our summer festival round up goes up, and later that day you announce the line up for your OVO Fest. Thanking you right now for showing us who runs this city. It's you, Drake.

OVO stands for October's Very Own (I'm sticking with my dubious story that I didn't just realize this) but the 2 day OVO Fest begins not in the fall but on the final day of Caribana, August 4th. Only Drake himself, Frank Ocean, and James Blake have been divulged as playing, so so far I think I could bring my mom to this, though I'm not holding out on that staying true. Last year featured Waka Flocka Flame, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, ASAP Rocky, 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, and Rick Ross. 2013's line up will swell out whenever Drake decides he's ready to let us know.

Of course the most important thing here is that we all need to cross ourselves or at least cross our fingers and hope there won't be an Aaliyah hologram. No one needs to see me cry. While we're speaking of hope for the future, I doubt anyone would mind seeing Future's name in the next OVO communiquĂŠ.

Ovo Fest is fairly affordable: package tickets for both the August 4th & 5th line ups at the Molson Amphitheater start at only fifty bones. You can thank Drake later. Tickets go on sale May 24th.
