Day one of FYF Fest went down on Saturday. If you were there, you would've been treated to performances across the musical spectrum, and from around the world: from chill American stoner rock, to ravey Euro dance tunes, to L.A.'s own King Kendrick Lamar.

Perhaps the most anticipated set of the night came from Lamar, who performed in front of a video that celebrated black American heroes like President Barack Obama, Prince, Muhammad Ali, and Oprah Winfrey. Isaiah Rashad came out to perform "Free Lunch" with Kendrick, too:

Even Lady Gaga was at the fest, making a special appearance during Tame Impala's set:

Other standout acts were California's own Ty Segall and the supergroup Head Wound City, which is made up of members from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blood Brothers, and the Locust.

There were tons of places to dance, but according to LAist photographer Annie Lesser, the biggest dance parties were at the sets of Floating Points and Todd Terje.


Get it!

We came across this video of Hot Chip covering Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" from last night, and just had to share, too:

Of course, the food was delicious, too—check out those tasty pics of Yeastie Boys bagel sandwiches, Salt n Straw ice cream, and feta fries from the Greek Grill.

Day 2 kicks off shortly. Have fun out there.
