New this year, the hip-hop festival will be held at two venues. On the first, the festival kicks off with a showcase of "All Canadian North Stars" on Thursday at his own venue History. North Star was a legacy sportswear brand popular in the city when Drake began his career.
The other two days will be held at Budweiser Stage with Chris Brown and Lil Baby headlining on Friday while there will be a Young Money reunion featuring Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj on Monday.
Fans couldn't contain their excitement at this news.
