Camp Flog Gnaw to Feature Tyler, the Creator, Lana Del Rey, Kid Cudi and Solange
The entrepreneur of entrepreneurs Tyler, the Creator has just announced the lineup to his annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. Set to take place from Oct. 28-29 at Los Angeles’ Exposition Park, CFG will host a plethora of rap and R&B from both the veritable mainstream to the underground. As always, Tyler’s specially curated lineup taps into the eccentric side of music and entertainment with a creative carnival like no other.
Tyler will lead this year’s bill once again as he comes hot off his highly-anticipated fourth studio album “Flower Boy.” Released in July, this record told a more intricate and intimate tale of Tyler’s life, a peak into the mind of a complicated, albeit undeniably ingenious, young rap star.
Also on deck for the fall weekend is Lana Del Rey, another artist having a stellar summer after “Lust for Life” dropped late last month. A$AP Rocky joined Del Rey on the singles “Summer Bummer” and “Groupie,” two tunes fans will no doubt yearn for as the Harlem rapper has also found himself on the Flog Gnaw lineup this year. The 28-year-old emcee hasn’t put out any new solo music since 2015’s acclaimed “AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP,” but has no doubt kept himself busy with a collaboration with Guess clothing and contributing production to his A$AP Mob counterparts.
Kid Cudi recently finished a stint in rehab and has now announced a new North American tour in support of last year’s “Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’” alongside a rare festival performance at Flog Gnaw. Cudi is also rumored to be working on a new project alongside Kanye West.
Solange will take the stage over the weekend, too, as a multi-talented singer, dancer and actor. “A Seat at the Table” dropped last September and, as her brother-in-law Jay-Z said, “I think she was slept on until this last album.”
Joining these heavy-hitters will be Mac Miller, Kehlani, Justice, The Internet, Kelis, Lil Yachty, Migos, Vince Staples, Willow & Jaden Smith, 2 Chainz, Earl Sweatshirt, Alison Wonderland, Denzel Curry, Brockhampton, Domo Genesis, Hodgy, Kelela, Kamaiyah, Left Brain, Mike G, Rex Orange County, Syd, Steve Lacy, Trash Talk, Taco and more.
Alongside the music, Tyler has created a true carnival experience featuring a ton of carnival style games and rides, including a massive ferris wheel. Ticket holders can purchase an all-day carnival pass for an extra $65, which includes access to unlimited games.
