A few weeks after announcing a preliminary line-up for their 2015 festival, the Ottawa Blues Fest took to Twitter this morning to announce that Kanye West would be headlining this years festivities! The initial lineup already featured huge names such as Jason Aldean, Iggy Azelea, Skrillex and more, so the addition of Kanye is a huge stride to making this the best Canadian festival of the year. The Chicago rapper-producer extraordinaire will be taking the stage on July 10th.
Amongst the artists excited about the news was Chance the Rapper who will also be performing on the same day at the Ottawa Blues Fest. In the past he has openly stated how much of an influence Kanye has had on him, and how he is Kanye’s biggest fan. He also took to Twitter to show his excitement!
