OutKast announcement builds excitement for OVO Fest 2014 [News]
Toronto, ON – The tradition of OVO Fest continues Aug. 3 and 4, 2014 inside of Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. Tickets for OVO Fest 2014 went on sale through Live Nation on Feb. 21 at OctobersVeryOwn.com.
So far Drake has announced one act for the festival and it’s a big one: Atlanta’s Big Boi and Andre 3000 come together once again as the legendary OutKast. As history has shown, Drake often reserves part of the OVO Fest bill for artists that inspired him as a youth, generally making for a very nostalgic experience – so expect the OutKast classics!
If you’re just getting familiar with OVO Fest, we recommend you check out our review of the 2013 show. HipHopCanada’s Adhimu “Mindbender” Stewart crafted an electrifying concert summary that caught the essence of the show’s many moments perfectly. Moments that included TLC reuniting to perform “Waterfalls” (with Lil Mama doing Left-Eye’s verse), Diddy (aka Puff Daddy) and Ma$e ripping through “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” and Kanye West squashing the notion that there was any beef with Toronto’s superstar – just to name a few.
