Drake's OVO Fest Gets Canadian Grant

It will be held this summer...
Drake has received a little help from the government for his OVO Fest. Rolling Stone reports that the Ontario government granted the rapper 300,000 Canadian dollars for the festival, which will be held from August 3rd to the 4th.
The grand came primarily from taxpayer money; it came from Ontario's Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, which is designed to promote activities and services that will help local tourism and thereby increase spending of those tourists.
Thus far, Drake and Outkast are announced for the festival.
