Drake trotted out the fifth edition of OVO Fest last night in Toronto, Canada and for the first time, the annual event became a two-day show.
Sunday’s day one was highlighted by headliners OutKast who are on their festival tour. They hit the stage at around 9 pm. “B.O.B.” and numerous hits from Stankonia set the tone for their set. Cuts from the critically acclaimed Aquemini album occupied the middle of their set.
OutKast was also joined onstage by Bun B for “International Player’s Anthem.”
The famous Atlanta duo’s set lasted around 90 minutes in total.
YG became a surprise opener for the event as he kicked things off at around 7:40 pm. Sporting a red “Bompton” hat and a Toronto Blue Jays jersey, the South Central, Los Angeles native rocked the crowd with all of his hits and guest verses on songs like Wiz Khalifa’s “We Dem Boyz” and Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”
Drake is slated to headline tomorrow’s festivities at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater.
