Frank Ocean has pulled out of performing the second weekend of Coachella

A representative for the singer has confirmed he won't be closing out the iconic music festival.

Frank Ocean has pulled out of performing on the second weekend of Coachella.

The musician had a controversial opening last weekend when he played Sunday night of the iconic music festival.

Not only was he late by up to an hour, but his set wasn't live-streamed on YouTube (like virtually every other performance) and he had to finish early because of curfew.

Many were hoping it was just teething problems and everything would be sorted for the second leg of Coachella.

However, now it looks like it's gone from bad to worse for Frank Ocean fans.

A representative for the singer has released a statement to Variety confirming the sad news.

“Frank Ocean will not be performing at weekend 2 of Coachella," they said.

“After suffering an injury to his leg on festival grounds in the week leading up to weekend 1. Frank Ocean was unable to perform the intended show but was still intent on performing, and in 72 hours, the show was reworked out of necessity.

“On doctor’s advice, [Ocean] is not able to perform weekend 2 due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.”

Blink-182 will now take his place in the lineup for Sunday evening.

Frank released his own statement, saying: “‘It was chaotic. 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's set last weekend was meant to look very different than it did when he came out on stage.

According to TMZ, the now-heavily criticized performance was supposed to include 100 ice skaters atop a custom-built ice rink.

However, this design was scrapped days prior after the singer suffered a serious ankle injury.

The injury was the result of a bike accident on the Coachella grounds only days before Ocean was scheduled to headline, the outlet reported.

Reports from Festive Owl indicate Ocean made a series of last minute changes and gave Coachella organisers an ultimatum: if they didn't happen, he wouldn’t perform at all.

An insider told Festive Owl: "It just didn’t seem like he wanted to be there but was obligated to be. Everything (including him) fell apart last minute.

They added: "Don’t expect to see any coverage from the festival about the set. Something that is unprecedented in the history of Coachella. The relationship is not in a good place right now."

Ocean's Coachella performance marked the singer's first return to the stage in six years after his 2017 performance at Flow Festival in Finland.
