Drake Announces OVO Fest's Return, Teams Up With Royal Bank Of Canada For New OVO Summit

With the Raptors securing their first NBA title earlier in June, Drake is looking to make sure that the summer of 2019 in Toronto is an unforgettable one. After announcing the return of OVO Fest during Monday's (June 17) parade, Forbes reported on Tuesday (June 18) that the 6 God is having OVO team up with the Royal Bank of Canada to host the first-annual OVO Summit. 

Drake has been hinting at OVO Fest's comeback for some time now. Recently, Drizzy offered tickets to the Bucks owner's daughter, Mallory Edens, who wore a Pusha T shirt courtside when the Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks went head-to-head during the Eastern Conference Finals.

The OVO Summit is a newly-designed business idea that has had several billboards cryptically teasing the summer event around Toronto, featuring the signature owl and phrases like “Dream it,” “Live it,” “Breathe it,” and “Earn it.” The conference will be open to the public and serve Canadian entrepreneurs looking to expand their network. 

"These events are at the core of what OVO represents: chasing new ideas and sharing information to help us on our paths to success,” OVO mastermind Oliver El-Khatib explained to Forbes. "The summit is a curated educational experience for all the like-minded young Canadians who are passionate about careers in music, sports and entertainment. These kinds of activations are our duty and, I feel, essential investments into the future of our city.”
