Frank Ocean today announced he would officially not be performing at Sasquatch! Music Festival, which starts on May 26th. According to Consequence of Sound there are production delays which caused him to cancel his festival performance. This brings into question his ability to play Hangout Music Festival, which is the week before. Hangout Music Festival runs from May 19-21, and it is assumed that the same "production issues" will cause Frank Ocean to miss Hangout Fest as well. The reason Sasquatch was officially announce, it's believed, is because they have already named a replacement in LCD Soundsystem. We can thus infer that Hangout Music Fesitval is frantically searching for a headliner replacement, and once they find one Hangout will announce their new headliner. I would expect Hangout to figure this out fairly quickly with a new headliner coming within the week. Unfortunately if you were really excited for Frank at Hangout you are SOL as all ticket purchases are final, regardless of if the Hangout lineup changes. Hopefully you are excited about who Hangout names in the coming days as the replacement. We will update as soon as Hangout makes an official announcement.
