3 Days to Bonnaroo: Frank Ocean

I missed a day, so kill me. I had to drive two hours to get supplies. We have three days. Enjoy.

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Bring a flashlight for everyone, and a lantern to light the whole camp site.

Frank Ocean – Sunday, June 15 – The Other Tent

Similar Bonnaroo Sounds: Ms. Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, James Blake


My introduction to Frank Ocean came through the Odd Future rap collective. Ocean provided strong, smooth vocal melodies dispersed amongst the various mayhem being caused by Tyler, Earl, Hodgy, and whoever the hell else is in cult of Odd Future.  But Ocean’s solo work stands alone; with two successful releases and numerous Grammy nominations, the R&B superstar has emerged as an Odd Future standout.

This is an opportune time to catch a Frank Ocean’s set. His second full-length album is set to come out later this year, and he’s bound to preview some new tracks at Bonnaroo. Check out “Nature Feels” off of Nostalgia, Ultra. The song samples MGMT’s “Electric Feel” and adds a truly incredible vocal performance.
