Just when everyone thinks festival season is over, along comes Camp Flog Gnaw. Over Veterans Day weekend, Tyler, the Creator hosted round seven of his annual rager at Dodger Stadium. Rap’s Flower Boy bid the season adieu with a quintessentially LA bang, and a stacked lineup of artists — including SZA, Jorja Smith, Lauryn Hill, Brockhampton, and Kids See Ghosts, a.k.a. Kid Cudi and Kanye West. The two-day event also brought out thousands of devoted fans, from local students in fanny packs and flatforms to athleisure-clad East Coasters. Many wore breathing masks for protection against heavy smog from wildfires that continue to devastate California — tangible proof of festival fans’ diehard perseverance. i-D hit the grounds with LA-based photographer Lauren Kai in search of fierce looks and positive vibes.
