Drake was the surprise headliner at the festival, which is organised annually by fellow rapper Tyler, The Creator in Los Angeles.

The festival attendees expected to see Frank Ocean as the headliner.

There had been hints given it would be him, such as his songs playing in between sets.

However, the headliner turned out to be Drake and the crowd was less than pleased.

He was booed off after performing for about twenty minutes.

"It's been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me," Drake said before ending his set 20 minutes earlier than he would have wanted.

After Drake left the stage, fans continued to chant for Frank Ocean but the venue was then shut down.

Drake fans took to social media to let it be known just how disrespectful the rogue crowd was for booing off a superstar of Drake's caliber.

Tyler, himself, was disappointed by the crowd. He tweeted, "Embarrassed by fans," after the incident.

Drake responded by jokingly tweeting that he'd signed a 10-year residency with the festival, so the disgruntled crowd would see him regardless should they continue to attend every year.
