Drake has announced a spectacular concert series he’s calling October World Weekend.
The three-day show – July 28, 29, and August 1 – will be a traveling occurrence for those who love music. This event features some of today’s most popular artists, such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown, alongside an up-and-coming talent named “All Canadian North Stars.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, and we can hardly wait.
October World Weekend is a part of the Road to OVO Fest Tour.
In an Instagram post, Drake also elaborated on what it signifies: “I am currently working on bringing OVO FEST around the world in 2023 for the 10th Anniversary, but of course, we wanted to turn the city up for the summer!!! More event announcements to come.”
Drake dropped his album inspired by house, Honestly, Nevermind, last month, only hours following its announcement. It marks his 11th album to secure the top 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album charts, becoming the fifth musician to drop over 10 No. 1 albums.
After releasing his new track, Drake dropped a music video for “Falling Back.” And last week, he shared the stage with the Backstreet Boys performing their hit song “I Want It That Way” in Toronto.
