Dust be damned, day one of FYF Fest was blast. The near-capacity crowd filled L.A. State Historic Park near downtown for hours of music and comedy on Saturday, featuring the likes of TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Simian Mobile Disco and Toro y Moi—among many, many others.

Ideal temps tempered the mood despite a deluge of dust from thousands of dancing feet. The fest’s prime attraction yet again was its sheer variety of music, ranging from the impassioned punk of youngsters Title Fight to the arena rock antics of Yeah Yeah Yeahs to the grind metal blasts of newly reconciled The Locust.

With numerous acts still left on the bill for Sunday, FYF continues to reinforce itself as California’s most unique music festival in its 10th year running.
