OVO Fest lawn seats going for $900, floor seats priced at $2K

Fans of OVO Fest were in for a pricey surprise to find tickets to Drake’s much-anticipated October World Weekend were listed for thousands of dollars on Ticketmaster.

Some seats on the resale market are listed for up to $2,400 for the pre-game to OVO Fest’s 10th anniversary. Fans had to wait in a queue, some waiting for hours, before they were able to get to the purchasing page.

Original-priced and resale tickets for the Young Money Reunion show are still on sale. Lawn seat tickets were originally priced around $900, and tickets for the floor section were priced around $2,000.

The first event of the three-night affair will be at the History music venue. According to Drake’s post, the July 28 concert will feature All Canadian North Stars.

The following day, on July 29, the event featuring Chris Brown and Lil Baby will be held at Budweiser Stage. Tickets for the show are sold out and only resale tickets are available.

The third event on Aug. 1, also at Budweiser Stage, dubbed “Young Money Reunion,” will feature Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.

The Star reached out to OVO Fest organizers and have not received a response at time of publishing.

Here’s what fans are saying on Twitter.

Some questioned Drake’s decision to include Brown in OVO Fest lineup given Brown’s violent altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna, which led to Brown’s guilty plea of felony assault.
