We're in for a "debut" dual performance from the dynamic duo Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar, also known as The Hillbillies, which promises to be an unforgettable experience. Other headliners include SZA and of course, Tyler, The Creator himself. Beyond these star-studded acts, there are some incredibly underrated artists that deserve your attention. Here are five artists to keep an eye out for at Camp Flog Gnaw:
Few new artists can match the infectious energy and unique style of AG Club. This dynamic duo, consisting of Baby Boy and Jody Fontaine, creates music tailor-made for live shows. Their electrifying performance at Coachella is proof of their stage prowess, and their braggadocious energy is sure to connect with the Camp Flog Gnaw crowd.
Another impressive duo, Paris Texas, is set to grace the stage at Camp Flog Gnaw. Building on their captivating performance at the Roxy, their show at Dodger Stadium promises to take things up a notch. With their recent album 'MID AIR' showcasing some of their finest work, tracks like "PANIC!!!" and "DnD" are perfect for the festival atmosphere.
For an enchanting dose of live soul music, don't miss Fana Hues when she takes the stage. Her presence is nothing short of magical, and her music follows suit. Fana Hues made a guest appearance on Tyler, The Creator's track "Sweet / I Thought You Wanted To Dance," highlighting Tyler's impeccable taste. Her angelic vocals and songs like "Icarus" and "breakfast" are perfect examples of what makes her great.
Having had the privilege of witnessing redveil's live performances at Lollapalooza in 2022 and during Danny Brown and JPEGMAFIA's show in Los Angeles, I can attest to his incredible energy and stage presence. redveil consistently delivers an electrifying performance and his shows only seem to improve. Tracks like "pg baby" and "Weight" are built for large crowds, especially the Camp Flog Gnaw audience.
No Sheesh article would be complete without a mention of Dominic Fike. Having seen him at Lollapalooza in 2022 and again at the Moon Man's Landing festival in Cleveland, I can confidently say it's a treat to witness his live performance. His recent album Sunburn is one of my personal favorites from the summer, and it adds to his impressive collection of songs that are perfect for an outdoor live setting in the California sun.
