The wait for new Donald Glover/Childish Gambino material is almost over—in a big way. His FX series Atlanta debuts September 6—that was the primary reason for Glover's visit to Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show this week. During the interview, however, Glover also discussed the end of his recent musical hibernation.

Childish Gambino is coming back too, the weekend before Glover's show debuts.  On September 2-4, the artist will host a concert camping weekend in Joshua Tree. The event is called "Pharos,"  and attendees have been asked to download a mysterious app to correspond with the event. Glover told Fallon that he'll be playing a new album there: "I had all these songs, and I wanted people to feel what it felt like to be in them... so I was like, 'oh, I should just invite everybody camping,'" he told Fallon. "I feel like Joshua Tree is a very spiritual place."

"It's going to be like a city," he continued. "I'm going to be be performing it, we'll have a huge place to perform. It'll be like a whole town." Watch the interview above—Glover also discusses his recent hiking trips, and getting bit by a pit bull named Barry. You can check out a screenshot of the campground below.
