Although October’s Very Own (OVO) Fest has taken place solely in Toronto, Canada since its creation several years ago, the Drake-founded festival may soon welcome a new city.
Drake made the reveal during his “Jungle Tour” stop in Houston, Texas over the weekend, which also served as the Canadian singer/rapper’s annual Houston Appreciation Weekend.
He revealed that the “Jungle Tour” stop with the liveliest audience will welcome their own OVO Fest in the next year or two.
“I was born in Toronto, but I feel like Houston adopted me every time…Listen, aside from my hometown, there’s only four shows on this tour,” Drake said while speaking to the audience in Houston. “You got tonight in Houston, Texas. You got Detroit. We got Chicago. We got Montreal. That’s all we got. So, this is what I’m gonna do. Whichever crowd is the craziest crowd out of those four crowds, I promise you in the next year or two, I’mma bring OVO Fest to that city.”
OVO Fest is an annual music festival that takes place over three days in Toronto, Canada. This year’s festival will welcome performances from J. Cole, Big Sean, YG, comedian Kevin Hart, and more.
The 2015 OVO Fest is scheduled to take place in early August.
