Kanye West, Pharrell, Future and More Perform at Drake’s 2015 OVO Fest [VIDEO]
The big news coming out of Toronto's sixth annual OVO Fest at Molson Amphitheatre might be Drake's continued shots aimed at Meek Mill, but that was just one part of an absolutely massive show.
The "6 God" didn't just perform his diss tracks, but gave the crowd plenty of his hits including tracks like "Started From the Bottom" and "Energy." It wasn't just the Drizzy show, however, since he also gave some of his famous rap friends time to shine on the stage as well.
Drake's OVO set always manages to attract big-name guests (2014's festival included appearances from Usher, J. Cole, Lauryn Hill and G-Unit, amongst others), but his lineup of guests on Monday night (Aug. 3) might have been his best yet. OVO signee PARTYNEXTDOOR did opening duties for the show. Future showed up fresh off the No. 1 debut of his new album DS2. Travi$ Scott appeared to get the crowd hyped up for his upcoming Rodeo release. Skepta came on to perform "Shutdown."
But there was still more star power in store form Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. Yeezy did his usual theatrical performance, throwing in "All Day" for good measure while Skateboard P gave a performance of his 2013 Daft Punk collaboration "Get Lucky."
It was an absolutely monumental show for the crowd in Drake's hometown, and one that fans are sure to remember for years to come. Drizzy's closing OVO set has become one of the biggest rap shows around each year, and he continues to impress every time around. Unfortunately, the music festival is surrounded by negativity after two people were left dead following a shooting at an official after-party. Three others were critically injured.
