Twitter Thinks Frank Ocean Is Stoked That Coachella Got Cancelled

    Frank Ocean

    Frank Ocean was due to headline Coachella for the first time this year in his only announced festival appearance of 2020. After initially pushing Coachella back to October due to COVID-19, the festival has officially been canned for the first time in 20 years.

    It's one of a few big festivals to announce their cancellation this week. Chicago's Lollapalooza and our very own Splendour In The Grass have both succumbed to the inevitable, instead looking forward to 2021. 

    Even though a cancellation for all these events was inevitable, most people are still sad to hear the news. Everybody except for Ocean apparently.

    Twitter has decided that Ocean is rapt with the cancellation based off his history of cancelled gigs. His last festival run in 2017 was filled with cancellations. Primavera Festival, Sasquatch, Hangout and more all had Ocean booked before he pulled out at the last minute. Australia, of course, has also been the victim of an Ocean cancellation with the singer dropping out of Splendour In The Grass in 2012. He hasn't returned since.

    Either Ocean is flakey or he's a massive perfectionist. We're going to guess it's the latter but it's still made for a few good laughs on Twitter. 

    Laughs aside, we do have to wonder what a pre-COVID 2020 has in store for Ocean. He had dropped a few tracks including Cayendo and Dear April. There was some speculation that he would compliment his Coachella headline set with a new album, however, nothing had been confirmed. Guess we'll never know.

    As for Coachella, organisers have announced that their rescheduled October 2020 festival won't be going ahead, but they've announced new dates for April 2021.
