Tyler, the Creator's annual festival, Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, is returning to Los Angeles on Oct. 28 and 29 at Exposition Park, and the lineup is completely stacked. With headliners set to play such as Tyler himself, Lana Del Rey, A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, Kid Cudi and more, it's hard to decide who to see throughout the two days. In addition to the amazing headliners, there's a slew of other artists that you can't miss. Take a look at five artists below who are bound to impress at Tyler's sixth annual two-day fest.
Most people know Syd from her group The Internet, who will also be performing during the weekend. But, Syd just announced that she is setting out on her own solo tour in support of her debut album Fin. The album is extremely impressive, proving that while fans of course enjoy her as the front-woman of the group, she can do it all on her own as well.
This group has an interesting backstory. The hip-hop collective consists of more than a dozen members, and they formed after meeting on a forum online for Kanye West fans called KanyeToThe. Just this year, BROCKHAMPTON has already released two albums, and Fader describes them as "a new kind of American boy band."
Another member of The Internet—Steve Lacy—just recently played his first solo show at the first-ever Soulection Experience in Los Angeles in August, and just like Syd, proved he can hold his own as a solo artist. Lacy's guitar skills are what makes him stand out—so he will definitely bring a different sound to one of the Flog Gnaw stages throughout the weekend.
6lack is another artist whose name has been popping up everywhere this year. His debut album Free 6lack was released almost a year ago, but with numerous hits, including "PRBLMS," 6lack is still flying high on that release. He just announced his first headlining tour, which he will stop in every major city in the U.S. and of course, at Flog Gnaw.
Kelela just released an impressive new album called Take Me Apart, and is another artist who is hitting the tour cycle this fall into winter. But what makes Kelela special is all of the collaborations she has been a part of. She has worked with artists like Solange and Danny Brown, which gives festival-goers hope that she might just bring someone to join her on stage. Anyone has been to Flog Gnaw knows that the festival is all about collaborations.
Camp Flog Gnaw 2017 is currently sold out, but if you were lucky enough to snag passes for the weekend, be sure to check back on AXS for everything Camp Flog Gnaw and if not, we'll see you at the carnival.
