Drake is still riding high from that Raptors NBA CHAMPIONSHIP WIN and he wants to do even more celebrating with the city of Toronto by bringing back OVO Fest in August. He announced at the Raptors Championship Parade in June that the famed OVO Sound sponsored event would return to Budweiser Stage for the first time since 2017.

The event spans four days from August 2 to August 5 and includes a creative and entrepreneur Summit, a basketball showcase and, of course, culminates in a two-day concert. The concert lineups were announced Thursday and include a roster of R&B and Hip-Hop artists—B2K, Lloyd, Chingy, Mario, the Ying Yang Twins and Pretty Ricky—which people quickly pointed out looks an awful lot like the lineup for B2K’s reunion Millennium Tour. The second night is just DRAKE, but, based on past experience, you can expect some surprise guests to turn up.

With Raptors Fever merging into Drake Fever, people were ready and waiting for tickets to drop on Friday but much to everyone’s disappointment, it turns out it’ll cost you two kidneys and your firstborn to go this year. Not really, but almost. Fans reported, as they tried to buy even a sliver of grass to stand on, that even a ticket for the lawn area would put them back a hefty $500. Want an actual seat to sit your tush in? That’ll be in the $750 to $1,000 range. Want a floor seat? Well, that’ll be $2,500, thank you very much.

Fans didn’t take it well.

Despite all the Twitter outrage, it looks like fans still begrudgingly bought those ridiculously expensive tickets. They were entirely sold out by Friday afternoon.

Wow, looks like Drake has some rich fans. Or we’re about to see these tickets hit the resale market for even more astronomical prices than they were originally.
