Bloc Party FYF Fest 2015 photos
Bloc Party livens up FYF Fest crowd with spirited mosh

Though not the full original lineup, Bloc Party proved Saturday at FYF Fest that they’ve got the same amount of spunk geared towards their live performances as they did when the epic Silent Alarm album first burst onto the scene in 2005. The scene in the crowd during “Helicopter” was the best kind of shitshow. Bodies were […]

Run the Jewels make second FYF Fest set special—joined by Zack de la Rocha, Travis Barker and Gangsta Boo

Per usual, FYF Fest had a lot of returning acts to the fold in 2015, and to some people it was a turnoff to see so many of the same names as in previous years.

Dinosaur Jr. blends guitar shredding, beautiful melodies in memorable FYF Fest set

I had been hoping to see noise rockers Dinosaur Jr. for quite some time. Saturday’s performance at FYF Fest had me kicking myself for not crossing it off the list sooner, as the wizard-looking J Mascis led the charge in a high-energy set.

5 Must-See Early Afternoon Acts at FYF Fest

Alaina Moore of Tennis FYF Fest is the preeminent LOS ANGELES music festival — because let’s be real, that desert fest in April is quite a bit of ways from LA. A large part of that is how deep the undercard is stacked, and 2015 is no different than any previous year. Take a look […]
