Frank Ocean cancels appearances at Osheaga, Drake’s OVO Fest
As he continues to recover from a torn vocal cord, Frank Ocean has canceled his August 4th headlining appearance at Drake’s OVO Fest. Ocean had already scrapped a mini tour of Australia as a result of the injury.
With James Blake the only other act scheduled to perform that night, promoters have downsized the festival to a one-day event. Blake’s set has been moved to Sunday, August 5th alongside performances from Drake, Wale, and several other “special guests” due to be announced.
The festival takes place at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheatre. Tickets remain available, though promoters are offering refunds to those who no longer wish to attend.
Update: Ocean has also canceled his appearance at Montreal’s Osheaga Festival. The festival is “working extremely hard to find a replacement.”
