It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Frank Ocean this summer. Fans have been patiently waiting for the R&B singer to return from his three-year hiatus since his debut album, Channel Orange, in 2012. Following the reported July release of his sophomore studio album Boys Don’t Cry (and accompanying magazine of the same day), Frank will also be headlining this year’s FYF Fest (F*ck Yeah Fest) in August.
This will be the 12th year the annual southern Cali music festival has been running, and with the line-up it has in store this year we can see why. Alongside the crooning voice of Frank, the line-up consists of Morrissey (who’s also headlining), D’Angelo and The Vanguard, BADBADNOTGOOD, FKA twigs, Run The Jewels, Kaytranada, Solanage, Toro y Moi and many more.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (May 8) for the festival kicking off August 22nd through the 23rd at the L.A. Sports Arena & Exposition Park in Downtown Los Angeles. The ticket prices are a little steep but for the festival the Huffington Post calls “the embodiment of indie music bliss,” it might just be worth it.
