TORONTO – 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.
