Photos: Brad Pitt At Frank Ocean, A Phife Dawg Tribute, And More On Day Two Of FYF
Saturday was a behemoth day for this year's FYF. The lineup featured Frank Ocean (and this time he actually showed up, unlike in 2015), A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Arca, Perfume Genius, MGMT, Mitski, and more. Frank Ocean took his set to the next level by involving multiple cameramen filming him in an artistic documentary style. At one point the cameras turned to Brad Pitt—who was right off stage—as he pretended to take a phone call while Frank Ocean sang to the crowd. He also had his own merch line, selling screen-printed, date specific t-shirts, the line for which was over an hour long.
A Tribe Called Quest, who went on right before Frank Ocean, took the opportunity to honor their late member, Phife Dawg. They put up a photo of the rapper at the beginning of their set, prompting the entire crowd to chant "RIP." Their FYF appearance was part of their final world tour.
Check out all the photos of the artists on FYF's Saturday lineup.
