Frank Ocean OUT of Hangout Fest, Phoenix Added to Lineup

The buzz has been going on for days, and unfortunately, the rumors are true.

Today, organizers for Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival confirmed that Frank Ocean will be unable to perform at the festival, citing “production delays beyond his control”.

The confirmation came indirectly, after organizers announced an updated lineup via social media. Most notably, Frank Ocean was no longer on the lineup, and French synth pop band Phoenix was added to the top billing.

Bonnaroo 2011 was the weekend that started it all. I was 17, barely out of high school, and had never been to a music festival before. It was the catalyst that led to many more festivals, and my eventual foray into music writing. An obsession with history and years of expertise as a wallflower inform the perspectives I have today.
