I took a much needed vacation to my favourite city, Toronto, for Caribana and Drake‘s seventh annual OVO Fest (July 31 & August 1). It was a jam-packed weekend of fabulous weather, food, drinks, music, and a few celebrity sightings along the way. Although this was my third time visiting Toronto, this was my first time attending the infamous long weekend. I believe I’ve found myself a new tradition!
As a huge fan of Drake, OVO Fest has been on my bucketlist since it’s inception. In the last six years, the Toronto-native has shared OVO‘s stage with the likes of Jay Z, Eminem, Outkast, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Kanye West and many more. Year seven surely didn’t disappoint. Not only was the venue moved from the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre to the Air Canada Centre, OVO Fest 2016 was combined with Drake and Future’s current Summer Sixteen Tour.
Drake, alongside Future, put on an amazing show with surprise appearances from Popcaan, French Montana, Rhianna and Kanye West. I’ve posted a few photos/videos from my Instagram page below. Enjoy!
