Warmer temperatures did little to dull the mood for FYF Fest day two, which featured the likes of MGMT, My Bloody Valentine, Washed Out, Flume and many others. L.A. State Historic Park looked like a scene out of Lawrence of Arabia as foot traffic kicked up billows of dust, and many were seen wearing 2003 era SARS masks and other mouth protection.

The crowd was decidedly older, a testament to the lineup for the day, and in general the vibe was a lot more relaxed given Sunday's proximity to a fresh work week. L.A. natives like Poolside and Touche Amore gave fans some homegrown love on polar sides of the musical spectrum, while MGMT and Beach House became relative snooze fests despite rabid love for both acts.

Standout acts included a mind-melting set from Baroness, who returned to L.A. after suffering a massive car accident last year that left them unable to play the festival last year, and buzz DJ Flume, who packed festival-goers into every inch of the enclosed tent for some high energy electronic.
