This November, Odd Future‘s second annual OFWGKTA Carnival will be held in Los Angeles. Headlined by OF members Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean, with additional artists to be announced, the show is set to take place Nov. 9 at The Park @ LA Coliseum.
This marks Ocean’s first show in America in quite some time. Besides his May performance at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest, he’s mostly been touring abroad. In June, he debuted three new songs in Germany during his international tour.
Back in February, Ocean announced that his album is under way. “It’s another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again,” he told BBC Radio 1. While we’re not entirely sure what to expect, he did say that it will be a continuation of his last album Channel Orange.
“At the end of Channel Orange, there’s ‘Golden Girl’ and it’s this beach scene, and I kinda wanted to extend that feel into the next record all together, kinda make it that theme,” he said. “I’m going to Bora Bora when I get back [to the U.S.]. I put a studio in my house. I’m gonna take it all to the beach and work for a few weeks.”
Last year’s OFWGKTA Carnival included custom rides, games, prizes and food trucks, this year’s event will feature two stages and a skate park with live performances.
Early Bird GA tickets are currently on sale for $50 via campfloggnaw.com. For those who want early admission and unlimited rides (as well as an Odd Future backpack and artist meet and greet), The Flog Gnaw package is available for purchase for $199.
