Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2017

Let’s talk about an influential environment, one of the greatest parts about attending this carnival is watching it grow large so beautifully. I’ve always enjoyed the atmosphere because everyone you’re surrounded by is so friendly and appreciative of your existence it makes you feel marvelous. It’s like a huge family reunion regardless if it’s your first experience or have been attending since 2012.

Creative freedom is a beautiful thing. Sometimes we go through phases of being uncomfortable not because we aren’t comfortable with ourselves but our surroundings aren’t use to a person not conforming for acceptance so it makes you feel iffy. In this case the setting reassures you it’s okay especially since it’s others expressing themselves as freely as you.

Originality is to shine bright unapologetically and to influence others to think outside the box. Make lasting impressions on one another simply due to our sense of style.

I’ve noticed I stop going specifically for the lineup that just happens to be a plus. To know your favorite music artist are around you and humble enough to stay and enjoy the carnival with fans because they appreciate us appreciating them makes us love them even more.

We found the time to do something. Some of us might not have socialized or attended a public event all year just because, so making time to travel whether it was from a completely different state or around the corner to take time to partake in happiness is “A” okay. You don’t even realize you’ve came alone in some instances because you form new bonds with the friendly people around you.

Special guest included YG during Tacos Set, G Easy, Famous Dex, and A$AP MOB during A$AP Rocky Set, SuperduperKyle while SuperDuperBrick was The Dj at Gnaw Stage & Mac Demarco. It was probably more but you can’t be everywhere at once so you know how that goes.

Illegal Civ had their own section for merch and to debut their short film along withholds films from the contest they held this summer.

The cherry on top is the fact Tyler the Creator is the CREATOR of all of us having a great time. We’ve seen his growth/ character development as years progress and got to grow with him also. Every year he reassures us we can do whatever we want to do with ourselves & be whoever we wanna be! Until next time everyone. Unfortunately I don’t have any footage or photography from the performances due to wanting to enjoy the experience first-hand, my apologies.
