Drake Booed Off Stage at Camp Flog Gnaw Because He's Not Frank Ocean

Yikes.

Festival goers got the surprise of a lifetime last night when Drake was brought out on stage for a surprise performance. And…they booed him.

Tyler, the Creator’s annual music festival, Camp Flog Gnaw, ran Saturday and Sunday, and boasted an impressive array of performers. But it had been rumored that the mystery headliner would be Frank Ocean, and when Drake showed up instead, a number of attendees were disappointed, and didn’t hesitate to express it.

As Tyler prepared to make the introduction of the final act, “We want Frank!” can be heard throughout the crowd. He seems to hesitate, and ultimately asks if he can bring another friend out. Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” begins to play and the rapper comes out on stage to initial excitement from the crowd.

But after a couple songs, the crowd started getting antsy about whether Frank was going to be appearing or not, and they were ready to move on.

“If you want to keep going, I’ll keep going tonight,” Drake said over loud and repeated cheers of “We want Frank.” People started booing, and the artist formerly known as Jimmy Brooks appeared to cut his set short and said goodnight.

So. Awkward.

Fans on Twitter were generally outraged that people were literally booing Drake off the stage, but some people who were at the festival insisted there was more going on that led to the really, really, really uncomfortable situation.

All the same, it sounds like a horrible finish to a festival that was otherwise a great time. And while neither Drake nor Frank Ocean nor Tyler, the Creator have commented publicly on the incident, some reports claim Drake is taking the brutal rejection reasonably well.
