It’s no secret that we love Tyler, the Creator — and really, it’s no secret why. This weekend, we were at the rapper’s part carnival, part music festival Camp Flog Gnaw at Los Angeles’ Dodgers Stadium where we got to see performances by Playboi Carti, Kali Uchis, A$AP Rocky, Earl Sweatshirt, Lauryn Hill and Tyler, himself (and where Jaden Smith announced that he and Tyler are in a relationship. But that’s another story).
The event, now in its seventh year, is Tyler’s very own musical dreamland featuring carnival games (and lots of carnival desserts), alongside stages filled with all of our favourite artists. It’s Coachella, but actually cool; Wonderland, but without all the shady rides. And it benefits charity. For every ticket sold, one dollar goes to LAC+USC Breathmobile, the first ever mobile asthma care centre, and BreatheLA, an organisation that promotes clean air and healthy lungs for Los Angeles kids and adults.
It was the best way to spend our weekend. Just wish u were there.
