Rapper Drake scraps first night of his OVO festival in Toronto after Frank Ocean cancels headlining appearance

National Post | Arts

Drake’s OVO Fest has been pared back down to a one-night affair.

The annual Toronto music hip-hop/R&B festival was to expand to two nights for the first time this year, with celebrated New Orleans-raised crooner Frank Ocean headlining the first evening and Drake headlining the second.

But after Ocean cancelled his performance due to a vocal injury, organizers announced Tuesday they were scaling the festival back to a one-night-only engagement.

As a result of the switch, British indie-R&B singer James Blake has been added to the lineup for the sold-out Monday show.

Washington rapper Wale will also perform while other special guests are expected.

Refunds will be available for fans who purchased single-day tickets for the Sunday lineup.
