Drake has announced a special concert series he’s calling October World Weekend. The three-day event will take place on July 28-29 and August 1 at various venues in Toronto with Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Lil Baby, and an act billed as “All Canadian North Stars.” Tickets go on sale this Friday.
A flyer for the event lists October World Weekend as being part of the Road to OVO Fest Tour. Drake further explained what that means in an Instagram post, writing, “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.”
Last month, Drake released his house-inspired album Honestly, Nevermind mere hours after announcing it in the first place. It’s his 11th album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts, making him the fifth artist to release more than 10 No. 1 albums. Following the release of his new record, Drake shared a music video for “Falling Back.” Last week, he joined Backstreet Boys to perform “I Want It That Way” in Toronto.
