“I go by the name of Drake. I love each and every one of y’all. I hope you enjoy this moment.”

The 32-year-old Toronto rapper made the promise to an estimated crowd of two million or more fans, and now, he has shared the festival’s lineup with his 58.7 million followers on Instagram.
He revealed the artists performing on Toronto’s Budweiser Amphitheatre stage for the Sunday, Aug. 4 show will be B2K, Chingy, Ying Yang Twins, Lloyd, Mario, Pretty Ricky and Bobby V — all of whom toured together earlier this year for the Millennium Tour.
Drake will be performing on Monday, Aug. 5 and will be joined by special guests during his set.
The OVO Summit is scheduled to take place on Aug. 2 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and the OVO Bounce is scheduled for July 29 to Aug. 2 at the University of Toronto’s Goldring Centre.
Many excited fans took to Twitter after Drake unveiled the lineup.
Some fans, however, were not too impressed with the artists scheduled for Aug. 4, with some wondering why Drake was using the Millennium Tour lineup.
OVO Fest begins on Aug. 4 at the Budweiser Amphitheater in Toronto. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 12.Follow @KatieScottNews
