The eighth installment of Tyler, the Creator‘s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival took place this weekend, a two-day festival featuring some of the hottest artists in the music industry right now.

The carnival was held in the same venue as last year: The Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, which was decked out with carnival food offerings, amusement park rides, and more.

For the most part, the festival was available to live-stream on Twitch. Now that it’s wrapped, however, we’ve collected the biggest takeaways from the event and collated them for you below.

Who performed at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this year?

The festival boasted a fire line-up — perhaps a given considering a) Tyler organized it and b) It took place at the same time as Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival. Performances included BROCKHAMPTION, Daniel Caesar, YG, DaBaby, Thundercat, FKA Twigs, 21 Savage, Earl Sweatshirt, and, of course, Tyler.

Drake got booed off stage

One act that attendees didn’t seem too pleased about, however, was Drake. According to the numerous posts currently circulating on Twitter, the line-up included a surprise guest that many anticipated to be Frank Ocean. When Drake showed up on stage instead, people were not pleased. Watch the moment unfold below.

What was the Camp Flog Gnaw merch like this year?

This year’s merch arrived in pastel colorways, with pinks, greens, browns, and whites forming the bulk of the offering. Taking to Instagram, Japanese company Verdy revealed the capsule (above), which brought together Tyler’s Girls Don’t Cry and Wasted Youth labels. As you would expect, it was built from staple items such as hoodies and tees, but for us the standout items take shape in the printed scarves and the heart-shaped cushion.
