Drake’s ambition to turn Toronto’s OVO Festival into a summer destination became even more clear for 2015, when the 6 welcomed an impressive array of headlining performers to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. Leading up to the event itself, the internet was set alight with speculation and commentary surrounding the Drake versus Meek Mill beef, and once the curtain rose for Drake’s OVO Festival set, it’s clear Champagnepapi’s aim was to truly put the controversy to bed, in the most inflammatory way possible. Those in attendance were even privy to a snippet from a third diss track levelled at the Philadelphia-based Mill, purportedly titled “3 Peat”, which you can check out here.

Aside from the music, the main talking point of the evening was Drake’s meme-themed backdrop, which took merciless shots at Mill over the course of the night. Sneakerheads also took note of the unreleased “OVO” Air Jordan VIIIs on Drake’s feet during parts of the show. Aside from the 6God himself, Future, Travi$ Scott, Juicy J, YG, J. Cole Kanye West, Skepta, Pharrell, Big Sean, PARTYNEXTDOOR and more all took the stage at the sixth annual OVO Festival.

On a darker note, there was also a shooting that took place at the official after-party held at Muzik nightclub, with two deaths and several casualties. Toronto Police Superintendent Frank Bergen told media that “this is a sporadic shooting that did occur just before 3:30 this morning at 15 Saskatchewan. It’s the Muzik Nightclub. A well-run event with lots of police officers in and around the area, culminating on a large evening event that occurred over at the OVO Festival.”

Below, you can check out some impressions from fans in attendance, as well as from the artists themselves. To see more fan coverage, peep the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre geotag on Instagram.
