Drake Got Booed Offstage During Surprise Appearance at Camp Flog Gnaw
After sets from A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert on Sunday, fans seemed to be expecting a surprise headlining set from Odd Future affiliate Frank Ocean, who’s been generating hype for a new project with a series of club nights and one-off singles. When Tyler, the Creator announced that the evening’s headliner would instead be Drake, fans seemed excited at first:
DRAKE WAS FUCKING LIT THANK YOU @tylerthecreator and FUCK YOU to all the fans that booed Drake off. Bunch of ungrateful fucks ruined it not only for myself, but I’m sure for Drake and Tyler also because that man didn’t even say bye and thanks like he always does. #CFG2019 pic.twitter.com/NARS0kJ42D

But pretty soon, Drake fatigue set in, and the crowd wasn’t shy about expressing their displeasure. “I’m here for you tonight,” said Drake. “If you want to keep going tonight, I will keep going. What’s up?” The audience then responded with a “we want Frank” chant and a chorus of boos. Find video below.
Here’s a video from Camp Flog Gnaw.
Drake: “I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What’s up?”
Some fans boo loudly. One yells “No!”
Drake seemingly cuts his set short & ends the show there. “It’s been love.”pic.twitter.com/n1BYrvLThc

Tyler, who hosted the festival, responded the following morning in a series of disappointed but amused tweets.
“Fuck that, yall represented me and Flog to my guest and made us look sooo entitled and trash,” he wrote, later adding, “All jokes aside shit lowkey funny hahaha, aside from that, hope everyone had a good time.”
Drake has not yet responded to being booed off stage.
