Future's Dirty Sprite 2 impacted earlier this weekend, and the world hasn't been the same since. You can't go fifteen minutes without seeing the #DS2 hashtag, hearing ""Rotation" get rotation (Metro Boomin' + Southside), or dying at the hilariously outrageous #FutureHive memes. It's been a crazy few days, but with this new announcement, you can see it's only the beginning. Taking to Instagram, Future has revealed that he'll be hosting four shows this week – costing the fan absolutely nothing. That's right, as a salute to fans each show will be free.* Check the announcement below and lookout for details, coming soon.

The even will be going down Zilker Park on teh weekends of October 2nd and 9th. Tickets are available now and can be purchased here.
This is yet notch on Drake's festival belt this year, who'll be performing at Wireless, Governor's Ball, Landmark, and his own OVO fest, not to mention his two weekend stint at Coachella a few weeks back.
Check out the full lineup above.

It's festival season, if you haven't noticed, and one of the best lineups of all I've seen was announced today.
Osheaga, which is held in Montreal, has major headliners and performers across many genres. From now on, I'm calling it the French-Canadian Lollapalooza. It's held the same days as Lollapalooza, as well: July 31 - August 2.
Kendrick Lamar, Florence + the Machine, Black Keys, Weezer, Nas, FKA Twigs, Run the Jewels, Young the Giant, Schoolboy Q, Toro y Moi and Glass Animals are just some of the over 100 acts performing over the three, so if you're in Canada, get your ass to this festival. Or at least buy me a ticket, let me stay at your place and eat your food. Please? C'mon. Where's this Canadian hospitality I hear so much about?
Purchase tickets, which include three levels of entry, on the festival's website, and most importantly, bring a smile and a positive attitude. No one likes a Debbie Downer.

"Giving the fans what they want to see is always my main focus. This will be the biggest event in the history of the sport. Boxing fans and sports fans around the world will witness greatness on May 2. I am the best ever, TBE, and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best, which is win.
