Bad news for fans who looked forward to attending Tyler, the Creator‘s Camp Flog Gnaw this year: the beloved festival will not return this fall.
Tyler’s manager Chris Clancy says the decision is due to the rapper’s busy schedule.
“It’s really not that deep,” Clancy told Billboard. “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 — after the pandemic halted the annual show and most others like it — and featured performances by YG, DaBaby, Solange, 21 Savage, H.E.R. and other hip-hop and pop artists.
Plans are to bring back the festival in the fall of 2023.
Throughout this year, Tyler toured with his album Call Me If You Get Lost, which earned him a Grammy for Best Rap Album at the 2022 award show.
According to Complex, the rap superstar will lend his voice to the upcoming sixth season of Netflix’s Big Mouth.
