The suspense has been killing us, and now the wait is finally over. The FYF Fest 2018 lineup has been revealed. This year’s FYF Fest will be headlined by the one and only, Janet Jackson.


That seriously just game me chills. I mean, it’s Janet Jackson!!!

Additionally, FYF Fest 2018 will be headline by another badass woman we all know as Florence + The Machine.

Considering the taint and shame that FYF founder Sean Carlson left on the beloved Los Angeles music festival, Goldenvoice has done more than right. This is the first time that I’ve ever seen a major music festival headlined by ONLY WOMEN!


In addition to Janet and Florence, FYF will also feature these amazing female-led acts: Amber Mark, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Courtesy, The Internet, Jada G, Kali Uchis, Lena Willikens, Lucy Dacus, My Bloody Valentine, Nina Kravis, Skating Polly, St. Vincent, Sudan Archives, The Breeders, The xx, U.S. Girls, Yaeji, and Youth Code. Learn more about all the acts here.

“FYF has been a Los Angeles staple for the past 15 years (happy anniversary to us!), and a very special event with a diverse booking that is unique to the festival,” saysFYF/Goldenvoice booker Jennifer Yacoubian. “In the past 15 years, this festival has grown immensely with a strong team of women and men behind it to bring fans the best weekend of summer. And with incredible artists like Janet Jackson and Florence + The Machine topping this year’s bill, we are so psyched to have two badass women leading the roster as we head into FYF Fest 2018.”

Going back to those old school feels, of being a two-day outdoor event, FYF Fest 2018 will take place July 21 and 22. While the festival is not back at its home of the Los Angeles State Historic Park, we hope one day it returns to the nostalgic venue, which recently got a grand facelift.

FYF Weekend and Single Day GA and VIP passes go on sale Friday, April 6th at 12pm PT. Pass pricing below. American Express® Card Members can purchase all passes before the general public beginning Tuesday April 3rd at 10am through Thursday April 5th at 10pm PT.


For the fourth year in a row, FYF Fest has partnered with Plus 1 to donate $1 of every ticket sold to high impact organizations working to support the people in our communities who need it the most, both locally and globally.
