FYF Fest Releases Stellar Lineup With The Strokes And Phoenix Headlining
Angelenos, get your sunscreen and large-brimmed hats ready for FYF Fest. The annual two-day music fest hits L.A. this summer from August 23 to 24 with Phoenix and The Strokes headlining.
The folks behind FYF announced their lineup today and it's a pretty sweet one. Some highlights include Interpol, Grimes, Haim, Blood Orange, Darkside, Little Dragon, Future Islands, Death Grip, Tycho, Flying Lotus, the Blood Brothers, Jaime XX and Built to Spill. They've got a good mix of some old school bands and newer acts that performed at Coachella in April. And if you need a throwback to the 90s, Presidents of the USA are performing (yeah, you remember "Peaches," don't you?). If you were bummed you missed out on the Indio fest, now here's your chance to check out those bands—in less, sweltering heat and without having to drive a couple of hours out to the desert.
FYF Fest will be held at the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park from 2:30 p.m. until midnight each day. Tickets go on sale at 12:00 p.m. on May 22 on the festival's website, at record stores and retail outlets throughout L.A. Weekend passes go for $129 and there will be a limited amount of single day tickets available (although they haven't announced how much those will cost.) Weekend VIP passes will also be available for purchase for $229. More information can be found here.
Here's the full poster of the lineup:
