Last weekend was every Odd Future fan’s dream come true. While the rest of the nation was draped in scarves and light jackets, Los Angeles residents and sun-craving visitors made their way to Downtown’s Exposition Park in shorts and tees to take in the non-stop music, food, rides and games of Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.
Tyler the Creator & Co’s music festival brought out the best (and depending on who you ask, the worst) in people over the course of two days. By day, the likes of SZA, Alina Baraz, Kali Uchis, Gallant, Kilo Kish, Toro Y Moi and more soundtracked early arrivers and those who wanted to take in the actual carnival aspect of the fest. As the sun dipped out of the sky and sneaky L.A. natives broke down barricades and snuck onto the grounds, it was ASAP Ferg, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, ASAP Rocky, Kehlani, Erykah Badu, ScHoolboy Q and the Odd Future crew that owned the night.

As an added treat, set-crashers D.R.A.M., Isaiah Rashad, Waka Flocka Flame, Dillon Frances, Vince Staples and Earl Sweatshirt surprised the crowd, heightening their delight.
