Frank Ocean Fan Cuts Crowd Footage of FYF Festival Performance into Full Concert Film
“sorry if i stole your footage but it’s for the greater good”
Following a recently-prolific streak of features and loose transmissions, Frank Ocean finally hit the stage at FYF Festival over the weekend. Against a stunning jet-age backdrop, Ocean delivered his first stateside performance in over 3 years, treating fans to a career-spanning hour-plus set that left its fair share of tears along the trail.
Earlier this week, a clip of Ocean singing “Close To You” and the Jackson 5 cover “Never Can Say Goodbye” to a phone-clenching Brad Pitt surfaced. But if you scour Youtube, you can catch just about every moment of the performance via fan footage from the crowd. One fan who was not in attendance took it upon themselves to compile the highest quality clips into one 73-minute concert film that captures the performance in its entirety. Mind you, the audio is predictably lo-fi and it’ll test your patience for crowd participation, but if you’re one the plenty unable to procure a ticket for this weekend’s Panorama Festival (sister to FYF,) this could be the next best thing (or at the very least, something to hold you until Spike Jonez releases whatever he appears to be filming throughout the performance.)
