Tyler, The Creator's 2016 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival to include ScHoolboy Q, A$AP Rocky, Erykah Badu, Action Bronson, Death Grips

Posted by Billyjam, August 4, 2016 08:15pm | Post a Comment

Along with such other artist-curated music events as the Hierogplyics' annual Hiero Day, The Roots' Picnic, and Diplo's national touring Mad Decent Block Party, Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival proves that increasingly artists are taking further control of aspects of their careers. Once the domain of concert promoters, more and more artists have been producing or co-producing their own music festivals. MURS' sadly no longer, high-caliber indie hip-hop Paid Dues festival which, up until 2013, presented lovingly assembled hip-hop shows for the better part of a decade.

Although hard work even when these artists work in collaboration (such as Tyler the Creator whose teamed up with Goldenvoice), these artists are doing a damn good job presenting their own music festivals. Proof is evident in the line-up of artists, announced today, for the Odd Future star's 5th annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival taking place in LA in three months from now. Artists confirmed for this year's weekend long music event will include A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, Lil Wayne, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Erykah Badu, Chance the Rapper, Death Grips, Flatbush Zombies, DJ Mustard, TOKiMONSTA, Pretty Lights, Kehlani, The Internet, Domo Genesis and, of course, Tyler, The Creator himself.  Check the flyer above for some of other artists on the line-up, with more names to be announced later. Tix will go on sale Monday, August 8th, for the two-day event (Saturday/Sunday, November 12th and 13th) that will take place in Los Angeles at Exposition Park.

Posted by Billyjam, June 3, 2016 12:53pm | Post a Comment


It will truly be a Hiero Day on Saturday, June 25th in Berkeley at the UC Theatre. That's when the entire Hieroglyphics hop-hop ensemble will be performing on stage on the one night. Yep that's all the members of the 25 year strong legendary Oakland collective: Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, the mighty Souls of Mischief (Opio, A-Plus, Phesto, and Tajai), Pep Love, Domino and DJ Toure.  Having all these Hiero acts on the same stage on the same date doesn't even always happen on the official Hiero Day: the annual hip-hop music and culture festival that the veteran crew curate in their hometown each Labor Day weekend. In its five short years Hiero Day has rapidly grown and blossomed to become an institution, and one to be officially recognized as such by the City Of Oakland
