Drake talks OVO Fest 2012 lineup

After The Weeknd brought him out at a show in Hollywood Cemetary, Drizzy Drake returned the favor at the first Club Paradise tour stop down the road in Concord, CA. Drake talked to MTV News before the show about the third annual OVO Fest, scheduled for August 5th, and you can certainly bet that there will be a huge Toronto-themed “surprise” on stage!

As focused as he is on the task at hand, however, the Toronto rapper can’t help but look forward to his upcoming third his annual OVO Fest. Last July, Drake brought Stevie Wonder, Weezy, Rick Ross and Nas to perform at yearly hometown concert in Toronto; the year before that he welcomed Jay-Z and Eminem. He isn’t ready to announce the 2012 lineup just yet, but the “Headlines” MC promises a well-rounded mix of musical guests.

“The lineup this year is kinda a mash-up of everybody,” Drake said, hinting that some of his Club Paradise collaborators will be in attendance, as well as the Weeknd. “That’s the most important show of the year to me, OVO Fest, so I’m hoping that we really make it special this year.

“The premise of OVO Fest is you never know who you gonna see,” he teased.

Information on tickets will be coming soon — we’ll let you know as soon as details are announced.
