Keep reading for our top 5 acts you can’t miss.

 

LIL UZI VERT  

If you haven’t heard the name Lil Uzi Vert, than you’re definitely getting old. Over the past year, he’s become one of the primary figures in new school hip hop alongside artists like Young Thug, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, and Travis Scott. They may not be playing guitars, but make no mistake, these are today’s rock stars and the raw, unfiltered rebellion of Uzi Vert’s presence confirms it.

YUNA  

Best known for her work with Pharrell Williams and Usher, Malaysian singer / songwriter Yuna has been building steady momentum since making her US debut on Fader Label in 2011. With a dreamy, mellow sound that can be compared to Purity Ring and Fiona Apple, her set will provide a much needed break from the mayhem.

PHONY PPL  

New York’s Phony Ppl join the likes of Anderson Paak and Solange as an integral part of a nostalgic, yet cutting edge neo-soul wave currently dominating the music scene. The band has toured in support of Theophilus London, Erykah Badu and The Roots with a finely tuned stage show that’s a must-see at Camp Flog Gnaw.

FLATBUSH ZOMBIES  

Brooklyn trio Flatbush Zombies is what happens when you mix gritty, New York hip hop with large amounts of LSD. Since the release of their 2012 instant classic D.R.U.G.S.  these psychedelic troubadours have been hitting top festivals and selling out venues around the world with their intense, drug-fueled performances. If you aren’t ready for a mosh pit, don’t get too close, this one will get rowdy.

THE INTERNET  

As part of the original Odd Future crew, Syd tha Kyd and company have been a fixture at Camp Flog Gnaw since its inception. Before teaming up with fellow musician Matt Martians to form The Internet in 2011, Syd held down the turntables as touring DJ for Tyler The Creator and Odd Future. The group’s third and latest album Ego Death  was released to critical acclaim, earning them a Grammy nomination for “Best Urban Contemporary Album” and cementing their place among the most promising young bands in America.
