Over the weekend, we hung out at Tyler, the Creator's, fourth annual Camp Flog Gnaw in LA.

At just 24 years old, Tyler, The Creator has established a sort of dynasty for himself. He was only a teenager when he founded Odd Future, or OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All). He was only 21 when he announced the first Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival: a skatepark, city fair, hip-hop festival hybrid featuring the biggest names in the rap scene, from the members of Odd Future themselves, to hip-hop icons including Pharrell Williams and Snoop Dogg.

Since then, Odd Future, and Tyler, have obviously matured: the members are now television stars of Adult Swim’s Loiter Squad; their rising popularity manifested into successful solo projects including Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and The Internet; and Tyler, the mastermind behind much of Odd Future’s success, has become the leader of a fascinating cult-following with his successful solo albums, Golf Wang apparel line and hilarious persona.

As Odd Future matures, so does its annual carnival. This weekend, Camp Flog Gnaw returned to Los Angeles for the fourth year, bigger and better than ever before. Odd Future fans were entertained with carnival games, rides, cotton candy, a hot dog eating contest, and a very impressive lineup including Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, Mac Miller, Jhene Aiko, A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, Willow Smith, and OFWGKTA.

Thousands of Odd Future fans—most of them wearing Tyler’s vibrant, multicolored GOLF apparel brand—returned to the Exposition Park to enjoy a whole day of fun, games and music. GOLF subscribers—the die-hard fans who use Tyler's entertainment app—were given star treatment with free swag and access to exclusive areas. When they were finished playing Wack-A-Mole, we met up with some of the Odd Future fans to get a taste of their carnival experience:
