Kelly’s office has yet to confirm whether the 73-year-old councillor will attend this weekend’s festival, but said they’re waiting to hear back from him.

The councillor was recently caught in the middle of a Twitter feud, after Meek Mill accused Drake of not writing his own lyrics.

Kelly swiftly came to the Drake’s defence, tweeting to Meek Mill that he was no longer welcome in Toronto.

The tweet received more than 135,000 retweets.

Meek Mill was quick to respond, referring to Kelly as a “thug” and questioning why he would have the “audacity” to call him out for voicing his opinion.

Drake then released two diss tracks, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back” aimed to fire back at to Meek Mill.

The Philadelphia rapper countered Drake with the song “Wanna Know” but it was not received well in the hip hop community.

Even Kelly was not shy to join in on the criticism of Meek Mill’s song, tweeting a clever twist on the track’s title.
