First Day Of Drake's 2013 OVO Fest Canceled Due To Frank Ocean Injury

UPDATE: James Blake will now perform with Drake on August 5, as Frank Ocean's torn vocal chord kills plans of a two-day OVO Fest.

Drake has announced the lineup for his fourth annual OVO Fest. The Toronto, Ontario event short for October's Very Own, will take place on August 4 and 5 at the city's Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.

This year, Drake's lineup includes R&B star Frank Ocean, performing on the event's first day. The Def Jam Records artist and Odd Future member will be joined by singer-songwriter James Blake. Blake recently worked with Wu-Tang Clan's RZA on "Take A Fall For Me," which is included on his Overgrown LP.

As tradition, Drake is a headliner, and will perform on the second day. Special guests are signaled on the event flyer, as reported by HipHop-N-More.

Tickets go on sale May 23.

Last year's OVO event included The Weeknd, 2 Chainz and A$AP Rocky.

(May 16)

UPDATE: Following Frank Ocean's vocal chord tear last week, the August 4 portion of Drake's 2013 OVO Fest has been canceled. Pitchfork.com reports that the Odd Future member and Def Jam Records artist will no longer be performing, as Ocean canceled this week's Australian tour dates.

James Blake will now perform on August 5 with Drake and other suprise guests. First day ticketholders have been offered a refund for the now halved two-day festival.

      The real reason why day one was cancelled was because Frank Ocean tried to rape Drake. We had to kick Ocean's ass out.
