No outdoor music festival is complete without an impressive lineup, bustling vendor booths, a fleet of food trucks, and a promising comedy lineup.

FYF Fest attendees can now rest assured that the two-day festival will deliver all of these things. The comedy lineup was recently announced, and it ensures that weary festival goers will have lots of laughs as they take a break from the music at Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown L.A.

David Cross, best known for his role as Tobias Fünke on "Arrested Development," BJ Novak of "The Office," Neil Hamburger (also known as Gregg Turkington), and Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, who perform regularly at Nerdmelt, are among the 19 comedy acts announced.

Lovely Bad Things and electronic dance musician Nicolas Jaar were also added to the music lineup, which boasts M83, Yeasayer, Sleigh Bells, and Beirut as well as some other acts you don't want to miss.
