TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) Drake announced the return of his annual OVO Festival next month at Toronto’s Budweiser Amphitheater but the excitement soon turned to frustration for many fans once they learned the lawn area would be $500 and some tickets were as high as $1,900.
The Aug. 4-5 event is expected to feature acts like Pretty Ricky, Bob V and the Ying Yang Twins plus the obvious headliner, Drake himself. However, it was the prices of $500 Canadian dollars (US$383) for GA lawn tickets and seats going for $2,500 (US$1,918) that started an online backlash.
Here are some of the choice posts:
