Pharrell Williams and Tyler, The Creator are set to headline Odd Future's own festival.

Rick Ross, Mac Miller and Earl Sweatshirt will also play the third annual Camp Flog Gnaw event, which will take place on November 8 at The Park at the Coliseum in Los Angeles. In addition, performances will come from The Internet and there will be solo sets from Odd Future members Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, Domo Genesis and Mike G, as well as sets from Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, Trash Talk and Cherry Glazerr. The event will be hosted by Alchemist and Taco and there will be rides, food trucks and a skatepark.

Tyler, The Creator recently said that he was "bored" of rapping and wants to sing instead. He expressed his thoughts on Larry King Now, the veteran US broadcaster's online interview show. Tyler also said he'd like to move into film, saying wants to be compared to noted directors Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino.

Speaking about his future, Tyler said: "I hate rapping. It puts you in this box… I'm talented enough to do other things. I don't know, I'm pretty bored with it. It's not interesting. In the future, I want to do films. I want people to mention my name next to Wes Anderson or Quentin Tarantino. I don't want my name to be mentioned next to other rappers at all."

Earlier this year, Tyler, The Creator was rrested at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, for allegedly inciting a riot. The Odd Future member was picked up by police at Austin-Bergstrom Airport on March 15 following an alleged incident which took place on March 13 in downtown Austin. He was arrested and charged with a Class A misdemeanor with bail set at $25,000 (£15,000).
