Tyler, the Creator is back at it again, making waves with the announcement of the Camp Flog Gnaw 2023 lineup. In a unique and engaging reveal, around 14,000 eager fans, including myself, tuned into a Twitch stream to watch paint dry. But this wasn't just any paint job. As the mural on the side of a building came to life, it unveiled the artists set to grace the stage at this year's festival.
Leading the pack, we have SZA headlining the event. She's joined by the Hillbillies, an exciting duo comprising Kendrick Lamar and his rapper cousin, Baby Keem. And of course, the man behind the magic, Tyler, the Creator, will also be taking the stage.
But the talent doesn't stop there. The lineup boasts a mix of established artists and rising stars. Ice Spice, the megastar in the making, is set to perform, along with the psychedelic-rock vibes of Lil Yachty and the regional Mexican band, Fuerza Regida. Kali Uchis has secured her spot, and fans can also look forward to performances by PinkPantheress, Dominic Fike from "Euphoria", and Willow, who's known for her hit "Interstate 405".
Ravyn Lenae, who mesmerized everyone with her 2022 debut album "Hypnos", will be there, as will the alternative K-pop group Balming Tiger and the experimental R&B artist Liv.e. And for those who've been following Tyler, the Creator's journey, familiar faces like Rex Orange County, Earl Sweatshirt, and Syd will also be part of the event.
The festival is set to light up Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium on November 11–12. So, if you're looking to immerse yourself in some of the best music the industry has to offer, you know where to be. And as Tyler would say, "Call if you get lost."
