Drake recruits hottest stars for 6th OVO Fest

Returning for a 6th year, OVO Fest will be rocking Toronto on August 1-3, and this time with guests J.Cole, Big Sean and Kevin Hart. 

Kevin Hart will be opening the festival with his “What Now?” comedic tour.  J. Cole will hit the stage the next day as a stop on his Forest Hills Drive Tour. He will be featured with tourmates Big Sean and Jeremih as well as Dreamville artists Bas, Cozz, and Omen.

Drake will headline Monday night with special guests yet to be announced. OutKast co-headlined last year’s OVO Fest, which featured surprise appearances from Lauryn Hill, Usher, 50 Cent, Trey Songz, and Cole.

Drake has been in many good graces lately after the surprise release of his album If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.  He also has a lot to look forward to, such as headlining a handful of other festivals, including Coachella, Governors Ball and the Wireless Festival, before OVO Fest.

Tickets for the OVO Fest go on sale Friday, March 20.


Check out when Kevin Hart cracked jokes and even let out a little freestyle on Sway in the Morning.
