I was able to attend the first two annual, “OVO Fest,” shows but missed it last year. I had to come out this year and see if Drake could possibly top his first show that had Jay Z and Eminem come out. Of course you have seen the video clips from this year but here are my pics from the show. I don’t usually write that much but when I do the, “Nigel D. Presents,” posts I want to make you feel you were there. Enjoy the slideshow.

It was a beautiful day in the city of Toronto August 5th. Got to Molson Canadian Amphitheatre early to avoid traffic. The line to buy Drake’s special OVO x Blue Jays hat was crazy. I wasn’t down to drop $75 for it or stand on that line. Toronto has some beautiful women by the way.
Since I was early I walked around the venue to see the vibe of the audience. These are the lawn seats for the show. Basically the cheapest seats you can get, first come, first serve on grass. The view really isn’t that bad and I assume it must get crazy over here during the show. Overall a very mixed crowd with a lot of people wearing OVO apparel.
The spot was starting to full up, I started to make my way to my seat. Managed to get a good seat on ticketmaster.
Molson Amphitheater seats approximately over 10,000 people.
While chilling in one of the lounge areas I noticed J. Cole on a balcony. Not a surprise to me, I already knew he was coming out. Drake and J Cole always show each other love with Drake coming out for J Cole’s, “A Dollar & A Dream,” tour.
Almost show time…
Drake started off the show with, “Headlines,” and wasted no time bringing out the first surprise guest, The Weeknd. I haven’t seen these two perform together since the second OVO Fest two years ago. Hopefully these two will be dropping new music together soon. With both artists being from Toronto this was a special moment for the city.
