Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Lineup Announced
The 2017 lineup has just been announced for Tyler, The Creator's annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at Exposition Park in Los Angeles, and it's a doozy.
Major headliners for the two-day festival include Lana Del Rey and Tyler, The Creator, who just last month battled for the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, having both released their latest albums the same week. Del Rey squeaked ahead by roughly 1,000 albums sold to take No. 1. It was Tyler's first career No. 1 debut and Del Rey's second.
Additional acts announced include GRAMMY winners 2 Chainz, Solange, Kid Cudi, and Justice, a slew of past GRAMMY nominees, including A$AP Rocky, the Internet, Earl Sweatshirt, Kelis, and Kehlani, as well as tons of rising and freshly minted stars like Migos, Vince Staples, Brockhampton, Alison Wonderland, and Lil Yachty.
Careful readers will of course note that nearly every member of the original Odd Future lineup has also made the billing this year, with the notable exception of Frank Ocean. That said, there is still one blank spot on the lineup poster, and savvy eyes will pick up "+ special guest" in the announcement. So perhaps the door still remains open on the possibility of an impromptu Odd Future reunion during either Tyler, The Creator's or Earl Sweatshirt's sets. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
