Drake Prepares For First OVO Festival

Drake isn’t a guy to wait around for things to happen – he makes them happen.  Before dropping his major label debut, Thank Me Later, Drake brought his music to the masses through mixtapes.  And now, rather than wait for someone else to found a music festival, Drake is creating his own.

The OVO Festival will take place August 1 at the Molson Ampitheatre in Toronto. The intent is to make it an annual event. In addition to Drake, the one-day event will feature Young Jeezy, Bun B and more.  And while Drake is heading the event, he made sure people knew it wasn’t all about him, but about bringing top-notch tunes to Toronto.

“I truly believe this is entertainment at a level that the city has never seen before,” Drake said. “I’m hoping that it is a safe and magical night.”
