Frank Ocean cost the Coachella millions. Ocean's decision to skip weekend 2 at the last minute will cost the music event "several million dollars." Frank Ocean canceled his second weekend of headlining at the yearly Coachella Valley Music Festival earlier this week.
The artist says he hurt his ankle before his first-weekend show and that the injury is bad enough for him to have to cancel. But it won't be free for him to stop the second of his two shows. The 'Ivy' singer's last-minute changes will probably cost the event millions of dollars.

What happened with Frank Ocean's Coachella 2023 set?

All of the wrong things have been said about Frank Ocean at Coachella 2023. Ocean was an hour late for the end of Weekend 1 of the festival because he hurt his leg during practices before the festival.
After that, he cut the two-hour set short because the event had a curfew. All of this happened at the same time that the much-anticipated live stream of the set was stopped. Ocean finally canceled the last set of Weekend 2, leaving fans unhappy and a huge ice rink.
Most of the losses come from the cost of the giant ice pad that was supposed to be used during Frank's show but wasn't used because he broke his ankle at the last minute, and from tickets for the second weekend that might not be sold because Frank had to cancel.
Billboard's sources say that Goldenvoice is looking for another use for the ice pad. It can't be used as a public skating rink, but it might be useful in another artist's set.
Frank was to get paid $8 million for the two weekends, even though he canceled and lost half of that fee. Two acts took the place of Ocean. Ocean's spot would be taken by Blink-182, who would play for an hour. The event then announced a new show that would end on Sunday night.
At the end of the event, Skrillex, Four Tet, and Fred again would play a set together. But Ocean's sudden departure will cause Coachella to lose money in a way that wasn't planned. Even though it won't put them in the red, the event probably would have preferred not to pay those fees.
First, Coachella will reportedly have to pay Blink-182 $4 million to take Ocean's place. This means that Ocean's replacement will be paid for with the money saved by cutting his fee in half. But Coachella will have to pay Skrillex, Four Tet, and Fred an unknown fee again if they are to be the new closing act.
If the going rate for a set is $4 million, Coachella could have to sell between $8 and $16 million worth of tickets to replace Ocean. No one has said what this means for how the event and its long-time performance work together. Many people think, though, that Ocean won't be invited back to Coachella any time soon.
Ocean said that his recent Coachella show was "chaotic" because there were so many problems: he was an hour late, his set was cut short because he went over curfew, the live stream of his set was canceled, and more.
There is some beauty in chaos. It isn’t what I intended to show, but I did enjoy being out there and I’ll see you soon,- Frank Ocean


Frank Ocean cost the Coachella millions. Ocean's much-anticipated main set at Coachella on Sunday was his first live show in six years. Unfortunately, he hurt his ankle at the festival site and had to cancel plans for an onstage ice rink with 120 skaters who had been practicing for weeks. He ended up canceling his set for the second weekend of the event. This Sunday, new headliners blink-182, and Skrillex, Four Tet, and Fred again will take his place.
