Frank Ocean bails on FYF, replaced by Kanye West

Written by

FYF just announced that Saturday's original headliner, Frank Ocean, will be replaced by one Mr. Kim Kardashian. We'd been looking forward to Ocean's set, but, um, this is a serious upgrade to FYF's lineup. We're not sure how the fest pulled off such an epic last-minute change, but we're not mad about it. Two-day GA tickets are still (still!) available, so if you really love Yeezus, grab 'em here.

FYF's official, opaque announcement:

"Frank Ocean has decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance; due to this change, Kanye West will now headline Saturday night's Main Stage. With a lineup that already includes Morrissey, D’Angelo and the Vanguard, FKA Twigs, Chet Faker, Flume, Belle & Sebastian and more, FYF Fest is excited to have Kanye West play this weekend in his newly adopted home of Los Angeles."

Real pissed? Real psyched? Let us know in the comments below or tell FYF directly at
