Multi-Platinum selling and Grammy- nominated recording artist Drake has announced the 3rd annual OVO Fest is scheduled for August 5th at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.  Along with Drake, the hip-hop summer festival will also feature special guests The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.

 In a press release, Drake stated: "Bringing together the 3rd Annual OVO Fest is such a milestone for me. A lot has happened over the last three years-a journey that I'm so grateful for-but it's always coming home and performing for my hometown that means the most. This year, we're going to bring it just like we do every year-with high energy and music at its best."

NOW Magazine called the OVO Fest "a joyous love-in" for Toronto, and in previous years, the festival has seen Drake invite many greats such as Jay-Z, Eminem and Stevie Wonder, onto the stage for exciting cameos. 

Drake's current Club Paradise Tour features rising hip hop stars J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana.
