Drake has announced the lineup for Canada’s third annual OVO Fest. The show will will take place on August 5 at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in his hometown of Toronto, with performances from A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, 2 Chainz, and Drizzy himself. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 9.
Drake had a surprise for the sold-out crowd in Concord, Ca, bringing fellow Canadian artist The Weeknd out to perform their collaborative cut “Crew Love.” After seemingly appearing out of nowhere, the enigmatic crooner was nearly drowned out by ecstatic fans as an elated Drizzy danced onstage with his OVOXO comrade during the second leg of his “Club Paradise” tour.
The Weeknd is finally hitting the road this spring, as the Canadian singer-songwriter will head south of the border on his first U.S. headlining tour. In addition to festival performances at Coachella and Lollapalooza, the reclusive artist will snake his way through 10 cities across the country. See the itinerary below.
The Weeknd croons the tale of a wicked seductress on his haunting cover of the late Michael Jackson’s 1988 rock ballad “Dirty Diana.” The 21-year-old singer from Toronto resurrects the King of Pop with chilling, eerily similar-sounding vocals for the opening track to his new mixtape Echoes of Silence.

The Weeknd burries himself in solitude on his new mixtape Echoes of Silence, the final act in a triptych containing his debut House of Ballons and its follow-up Thursday. The 21-year-old Toronto singer croons his signature sound on the 9-track offering, which features an eerie cover of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” The trilogy is complete.
