I’ve had the 6th annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival marked in my calendar for months. Founded by artist Tyler, The Creator, Flog is a who’s who of hip-hop and R&B stars and has become one of the most fascinating hip-hop-centric festivals around right now. Look out for my extensive review next month. If you’re planning on attending Camp Flog Gnaw or any other festivals this month, let us know in the comments section or hit us up on social media.
