This would be EPIC.
Drake has teased that OVO Fest 2017 might be coming to London this summer and the hype is very, very real.
The rapper has hinted at the news during a number of recent UK shows during his Boy Meets World Tour, sending rumours flying about OVO Fest UK as well as a Young Money reunion tour.
Addressing his sold-out London show at the O2 Arena on 5th February, Drizzy said "We might have to do something special, we might have to do some Young Money reunion show out here this summer.
"I might have to bring all my friends from America, all my friends from Canada, the whole of the OVO," before signing off with "OVO Fest London coming soon."

The rapper has since dropped more hints during shows in Manchester and Leeds, finishing off with a final announcement at another show at the O2.
"I want this to be the craziest party we could possibly have. If it is, I promise you an OVO fest this year."
If the event goes ahead, it's sure to be a memorable one. Previous performers include Eminem, Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and J Cole to name a few.
Drizzy's UK fans soon took to Twitter to express their excitement for the potential event.
