Drake has jokingly announced plans for a “10 year residency” at Camp Flog Gnaw festival after being booed off stage.

The Canadian rapper was met with jeers and calls to leave after arriving for a surprise headline set at the festival on Sunday night (10 November).

On Instagram, Drake responded to the boos with a pledge to perform at the festival in perpetuity.

“Plot twist,” he wrote, “I just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw. Sorry kids – see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR ’til you are 30.”

Kendall Jenner, Ty Dolla Sign and Scooter Braun were among the star’s followers to laugh at his response, along with singer Halsey, who replied: “Season ticket holder”.

Internet personality Adam22 added, in reference to The Simpsons:They weren’t booing, they were saying boo-urns”.

Footage from the festival went viral yesterday, after fans expecting Frank Ocean to be the surprise headliner were left disappointed by Drake’s arrival on stage.

“I’m here for you,” Drake is seen telling the audience. “If you want me to keep going, I’ll keep going.” He is then met with a chorus of “No!”s.

Tyler the Creator, the founder of the festival, tweeted in defence of Drake shortly after the incident, writing: “I thought bringing one of the biggest artists on the f***ing planet to a music festival was fire,” adding that the crowd “acted out like assholes”.
