FYF kicked off its weekend of summer Friday night, and the night didn't disappoint. Missy Elliott dominated the main stage, Bjork dropped down from her ethereal UFO, Anderson .Paak filled the crowd with raucous energy, and Angel Olsen guided everyone on an emotional journey. Other performers included Slowdive, Flying Lotus, Royal Headache, Kamaiyah, and more. It was a shorter day for FYF, kicking off at 5 p.m. rather than the 2 p.m. start time for Saturday and Sunday, but that didn't mean it lost any of its power. If anything, it concentrated everyone's attention on the incredible artists who performed for the hip Los Angeles crowd. Check out the photos of all the bands performing at Exposition Park.
