OVOFest 2014 Complete List Of Surprise Guests

OVOfest

OVOfest

We didn’t get to attend the 2014 edition of Drake‘s OVOfest so it was lucky for us that D-Sisive, the award-winning rapper and man whose turds OB OBrien treats as religious artifacts, live-tweeted the whole event.

To the best of our knowledge here’s what went down at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre tonight.

Sugar Ray!

Great Big Sea!

Lou Bega!

Yakov Smirnoff!

Clay Aiken And The Cast Of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Raincoat!

Puppetry Of The Penis!

Garth Brooks As Chris Gaines (holy shit, guys)!

Bears!

The “I have no legs guy from KIDS”!

Motherfuckin’ Zack Attack!

Rick Moranis!

Smash Mouth! For all the all-stars…

And blammo, a true throwdown to that whole hologram guest star gimmick…

Jem And The Holograms!

Sounds like an amazing show. Sad we missed it.

Now that Drake has the marquee OVO Fest and appears to be running the Toronto Raptors it’s just a matter of time until he takes over the whole city like the secondary Batman villain he is.

While we’re waiting for that to happen we can all look back at his very successful 2013, which Sarah carefully summarized in a story for Huffington Post Music Canada.

Top 11 Music Videos By Director X: From Drake And Bieber To Nicki And Nelly To ‘Northern Touch’

Drake

Drake

Because we’re notorious and remember that song “Northern Touch” with Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust, when Sarah was presented with the opportunity to talk to the music video director known as X she jumped at the opportunity.

X has come a long way since churning out MuchMusic/Rap City fodder and nowadays lists folks like Justin Bieber, Drake and The Wanted on his resume.

When Sarah spoke to him they talked about select videos he’s created over the years.
