Drake announces OVO Fest will return to Toronto this year
With the announcement of Rolling Loud making its way to Toronto later this year, fans of hip-hop were left wondering if Drake would make an appearance or if his own OVO Fest would be making a comeback.
Fans can now stop worrying if the hip-hop festival is coming back because Drake just announced that OVO Fest would officially be returning for 2022.
British rapper Dave was in town for a concert last night at History, with some fans speculating if Drake would make a surprise visit at his own venue.
For the lucky fans that were there, they were in for a treat because not only did Drake come out on stage to perform his song "Knife Talk," but he also announced that OVO Fest would be returning to the city.
