2015 OVO Fest Lineup Announced, Kevin Hart, J. Cole and Drake to Headline
The OVO Fest continues to expand. Drake’s beloved concert series has extended its length to three days this year and will be held between the Air Canada Centre and Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto from August 1-3. Some of the biggest comics and artists in hip-hop will take the stage during the festival’s sixth annual installment.
Comedian Kevin Hart will headline the festival’s first day on August 1 at the ACC. The fest then travels to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre for its final two days on Sunday and Monday. J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour will invade Toronto on Sunday and will feature additional performances from Big Sean, YG, Jerimih, Bas, Cozz and Omen. The final day will be headlined by Drake himself.
Additional guests are expected to be in attendance, though Drake has kept a tight lip as to who will perform at this year’s fest. Last year, he tapped Kanye West and Diddy for surprise sets. Abel Tesfaye’s also appeared in 2014.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday at 12 EDT. Primary market prices range anywhere between CA 114.30 and CA 319.8
