Drake's OVO Fest was back in Toronto tonight for a sixth time, but this year all eyes weren't on who he would bring as a surprise guest –– but whether he would respond to Meek Mill. Gossip surrounded the show on social media about the possibility of another diss song titled "3 Peat" surfacing, and talk grew louder after he was seen wearing a "Free Meek Mill" shirt during his soundcheck. As for Drake's performance? He definitely did not disappoint, as he mixed his animosity with the spectacle that has become synonymous with his yearly event. Here's everything that went down during this year's OVO Fest:

PARTYNEXTDOOR kicked off the show with a medley of hits from his acclaimed mixtapes:

Got a decent spot for #OvOFest

.@PARTYOMO "Recognize" #OVOFest

.@PARTYOMO brought out @Preign for "Realest In The City" #OVOFest 👀

Shit got real very quickly when Drake opened up his set with "Charged Up," and "Back To Back" with memes of Meek Mill in the background, setting an aggressive tone for the night:

.@Drake just took the #OVOFest stage! ITS LIT.

Even Norm Kelly made a cameo:


Drake also had some words for Meek, saying that "he [did this] to himself," before giving him a "Participation Award" for his less than well recieved diss song:

Skepta, who confirmed his involvement in the show earlier in the week, joined Drake on stage to perform "Shut Down":

The #FutureHive also got some love when their lord and savior Future came out to perform "March Madness":

Drake brought out his "idol" as Kanye West returned to OVO Fest for lengthy performance of his classics:


G.O.O.D. Music was definetly in the building, as Kanye surprised the raucous crowd with Travi$ Scott, who performed "Antidote" and "Upper Echelon." 

Big Sean also showed up to perform "Blessings" with Kanye and Drake for the first time:

.@Drake back onstage for "Blessings"! #OVOFest

"Hotline Bling" is certainly a late entry into song of the summer if this performance is any indication:

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was Pharrell, who got a legendary entrance before his performance of "Get Lucky":

It wasn't all about beef, though, as Drake ran through hit singles like "Started From The Bottom," and "10 Bands":

Drake closed out the show beside about 100 of his woes with a performance of "Know Yourself." Oh, and he performed "Back To Back"...again. Talk about overkill:

Back to back again!!!
