We’re incredibly big fans of Frank Ocean over here. In fact, when it looked like the R&B singer was never going to release his sophomore album, we built an entire playlist full of music to tide you over. Thankfully, that unfortunate dry spell has ended, and we were finally treated to an excellent release at the end of August 2016.

Entitled, Blonde, the collection of music was an experimental take on R&B, and one that pushed its creator’s sonic palette to new and interesting heights. Naturally, the album was a critical success, and catapulted the songwriter back into the pop culture forefront after a lengthy self-induced exile.

Before releasing any new material, however, it was nearly impossible to see Frank live. And while he threw himself into the game once again, there was still only a handful of confirmed dates on the horizon. Then, a string of no-shows dampened the excitement for fans and crossed fingers around the festival circuit. Despite a few cancelled performances, it looks like Frank Ocean is finally making an effort to share his music with his army of diehard listeners.

Along with this weekend’s WayHome Festival in Ontario, Frank has slated appearances during Panorama and Finland’s Flow Fest. If you happen to be busy these next few weeks, however, we’ve got you covered. Frank’s recent stop at FYF Fest in Los Angeles has been uploaded to YouTube in its entirety, and you’ll want to bookmark this beautiful gift for future viewing. Editing wizard, Brian Kinnes, has gathered all of the decent concert footage he could find from FYF and has stitched them together into one glorious concert film. You can check it all out below.
