Drake Fans are Wilding At The Prices For His Upcoming OVO Fest
Drake's annual OVO Fest is returning to his hometown city of Toronto in August but the prices of the festival have left fans absolutely shocked.
The event didn't go on as planned last year and that left the city wondering if the festival would ever return but after the Toronto Raptor's miraculous win in the NBA Finals, Drake had no choice but to bring back the beloved festival.
As soon as the tickets for the event went on sale, tickets were selling for as low as $185 but as the demand grew and the festival's official ticketseller Ticketmaster had listed the tickets as 'platinum.'
The prices soared and fans were said to have been waiting in the online queue for hours before finding out the ridiculously high prices; ranging between $400-$800 at one stage, some even paying up to $2000.
As news of the festival's ticket prices spread online, fans were very quick to spread their shock, anger and disappointment over what they had just witnessed.

The five-day festival features a OVO summit on the first day of the event before a three-day basketball tournament commences. The music lineup features a host of iconic 00's RnB veterans including the likes of Mario, Chingy and the Ying Yang Twins to name a few before Drake takes the centre stage on the final day of the festival.
To all of you who purchased tickets to the event, we hope your bank account is okay.
