Late last night, Drake unveiled his lineup for the 2019 edition of his OVO Fest which this year will feature performers from The Millennium Tour, B2K, Chingy, Mario, Ying Yang Twins, Pretty Ricky and Bobby V, who will hit the Budweiser Stage on August 4th.

So far, Drake is announced as the only performer on August 5th, but as we know in years past, he’s likely to include a few surprises.

That weekend will also include Drake’s basketball tournament, OVO Bounce, which will take place at the Goldring Centre at the University of Toronto; in years past, former Toronto Raptors players Demar Derozan and Amir Johnson have made appearances, along with Canadian NBAers such as Jamal Murray, Anthony Wiggins and Anthony Bennett.

For the first time, Drake’s OVO Summit will be made available to the general public. The conference is an educational one according to OVO co-founder, Oliver El-Khatib, who said,

“Whether you’re an athlete, student, artist, or a globally-recognized institution like OVO or RBC, one thing we all have in common is we’re always chasing new ideas and information to help us on our path to success…The goal behind OVO Summit is to teach passionate young people about the opportunities and challenges of the arts and entertainment industries.”

He added,  “I feel these kind of activations are our duty… and we’re thankful to be aligned with RBC to echo this message to a larger audience,” he explained. “I’m passionate about passing along the wisdom I’ve gained that can be essential in order to be mentally and physically prepared to reach our goals.

It was during the Toronto Raptors Championship parade that Drake announced the return of his OVO Fest…



If you remember, last year Drake had to cancel the first of three Toronto shows last year on his tour with Migos.
