Every year we make our way back to Toronto for OVO Fest. It is consistently one of the best shows of the year and one of the few that can consistently exceed expectations. In the hours leading up, we reminisced over last year’s show. We wondered if Drake could top guests like Kanye, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean and TLC. We found comfort in knowing that the worst case scenario was that we would simply watch Drake perform all night.
Drake did not disappoint in his fifth year of hosting OVO Fest. The first night opened with YG who put on a high energy set filled with intermittent attempts at getting girls to flash him. He played through most of his songs from My Krazy Life in a Blue Jays jersey and his signature Bompton hat. Night one was headlined by OutKast who put on a nonstop set full of classics like Hey Ya, Roses, Ms. Jackson and Bombs Over Baghdad.
Night two was opened up by Jhene Aiko followed by a surprise set from Lauryn Hill. Drake came out at the end of Lauryn Hill’s set to perform one of his latest tracks, Draft Day, which he released recently for free on the OVO Blog.
Drake ripped through an exceptional set which included fire balls, elevating over the crowd on a zip line contraption and a slew of surprise guests. OVO Fest 5 featured Trey Songz, J Cole, PARTYNEXTDOOR, DJ Khaled, Tinashe, YG, Usher (our personal highlight), Majid Jordan and G Unit.
It was another hyper entertaining and inspiring night put on by Drake. He has played the biggest role in putting Toronto on the map for a new generation. We are proud to be from Toronto, a city people will now affectionately call The 6.

I have immense respect for Scott Campbell. Both his work and character are continuously impressive. I had the chance to meet him in person and was humbled by his down to earth nature despite his achievements. He has done an exceptional job with his fine art, tattoos and charity work. His latest project with Free Arts NYC further solidifies his role model status.
