Drake just earned an astonishing 12 nominations at this year’s BET Awards, but the “Started From the Bottom” MC has another reason to celebrate: Drizzy has announced the first few details for his fourth annual OVO Fest. The lineup for the upcoming showcase features channel ORANGE mastermind Frank Ocean, U.K. soulman James Blake, and, of course, Drake himself. As of now, those are the only artists confirmed for the two-day event — which takes place on August 4 and 5 — but the promo poster for OVO Fest promises more “special guests.” 

Past installments of October’s Very Own festival have featured performances from Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas, the Weeknd, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and Stevie Wonder, among many others. 

This year’s edition will take place at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto. Tickets start at $49.50 and will go on sale on Friday, May 24 at 10 a.m. via Live Nation.
