For this year's OVO Fest, Drake is joined by B2K, Mario, Lloyd, Pretty Ricky, Ying Yang Twins, Chingy, and Bobby V.
That's not a very impressive lineup for any year, and certainly not for 2019.
Yet, Drake is charging a pretty penny for tickets to his ninth annual Toronto event.
Fans are not happy:
$500 for lawn seats at #OVOFest— liam gasparotto (@LGasparotto13) July 12, 2019

Lmfao! $500 dollars for lawn tickets to #OVOFest?! Is @Drake bringing Michael Jackson, Tupac, and Notorious B.I.G. back from dead? pic.twitter.com/YZymQlL8Q3— Sora/Asian Female Excellence (@Notorious___KIM) July 12, 2019

Lawn = $500
Everywhere else= $1000
The Budweiser stage holds 16,000 people and 7,000 on the lawn.
Lawn = 7,000 x $500 = $3,500,000
Everywhere else = 16,000 x $1,000 = $16,000,000
How much money does one guy need...

I bought 11 ovo fest tickets one year that didn’t even cost me $800 and they were all GA/200s— SARINA (@sarinahmg) July 12, 2019
There may be an explanation for all of the sticker shock:
Those were "Official Platinum" Tickets. Lawns for Day 1 were $75 and Day 2 $175, but sold out right away.— Jake Portnoy (@jakeportnoy) July 12, 2019
