Frank Ocean has cancelled his headline slot at Hangout festival in Alabama due to production delays. "He passes on his apologies & hopes to return to AL soon". Festival representatives explained that "Due to production delays beyond his control Frank Ocean will be unable to perform". Cooksey claims the incident never took place and was part of a plan created by Ocean to ruin his father's movie career. This notice of cancellation came just three weeks before the staging of the Washington state festival, and Ocean has since been replaced on the bill by LCD Soundsystem.

Ocean also responded this week to the $14.5 million libel lawsuit that his father Calvin Cooksey filed against him over a Tumblr post.

Ocean's next scheduled live date is at Primavera Festival in Barcelona on June 2. Whole room singing and worshipping.

Representatives for the WayHome, Northside, Flow and Way Out West festivals told Pitchfork that Ocean is still scheduled to perform at their events as originally planned.
