Solange, Lana Del Rey, A$AP Rocky And More Announced For Tyler, The Creator's Festival
Why pay to attend music festivals when you can just make your own (and headline it every time)? We assume that was the thinking behind Tyler, the Creator's decision to create the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, which will be returning for its sixth year.
This year's event is set to be a powerhouse; as unveiled on Monday afternoon, the roster of artists will include the likes of Solange, Lana Del Rey, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, and Vince Staples. Justice will also be there to tend to the EDM crowd, and Fidlar will be playing for the guitar-inclined. Also, both of Will Smith's kids will be teaming up to show us the power of siblinghood. And, as mandated for all Camp Flog Gnaw happenings, Tyler, the Creator will be the headliner:
The event is slated to take place on both October 28 and 29 at Exposition Park by the Memorial Coliseum. There's no word yet on which artist plays which day. Tickets, which will go on sale here on Thursday at noon, will be $208 for general admission two-day passes, and $368 for two-day VIP passes. The VIP passes will afford you a separate VIP entrance (so you won't have to touch elbows with us normies), an exclusive viewing area for the main stage, access to exclusive food vendors, and other amenities. There's also a $65 single day pass that lets you play the carnival games (but not watch any of the performances).
If you're on the fence about purchasing tickets, here are some videos to sway your decision:
