Tyler, the Creator Reveals Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival At Dodger Stadium In November

A surprise music video drop from Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem featured Tyler, the Creator revealing that Camp Flog Gnaw would be returning in November for the first time since 2019.

Big news was revealed in Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem’s new music video “The Hillbillies.” Appearing in the video was Tyler, the Creator, who revealed that his long-delayed carnival-slash-music festival Camp Flog Gnaw will be returning to Dodger Stadium in November.

Although the official lineup for the festival has not been revealed, some fans have assumed that Lamar will be the headliner, while Keem may also make an appearance at the event. In an interview with Billboard in 2022, Tyler’s longtime manager, Chris Clancy shared that the Call Me If You Get Lost rapper would not be holding a Camp Flog Gnaw until 2023 due to a hectic schedule.

"It’s really not that deep," Clancy said. "Tyler toured all year and was busy with a number of projects. Reading the tea leaves and what’s happening with festivals coming out of the pandemic, we thought it would be best to come back next year."

The last Camp Flog Gnaw was held in November 2019, with performers including Solange, Yasiin Bey, A$AP Rocky, H.E.R., Blood Orange, YG, 21 Savage, Thundercat, Summer Walker, Earl Sweatshirt and Drake, who was infamously booed off the Camp Stage. In response, Tyler said he was “disappointed” with attendees' reaction to the Her Loss rapper.

"The only reason I was mad was because I was like, 'Aubrey, come to this. Everyone is going to welcome you with open arms. These kids don't judge. This is a safe spot for anyone,’” Tyler told Kerwin Frost in 2019. “And then when that happened and these m*********** are like 'f*** you,' it's like a reflection on me to Aubrey."
