Kanye West to headline FYF Fest Saturday, Frank Ocean is out

Whether you’re mad about it, or ecstatic, it looks like Kanye West is headlining FYF Fest this Saturday, August 22. But what about Frank Ocean? Why is he out? We don’t know. Do you? With Morrissey being notorious for canceling shows and tours, and Death Grips pulling a no-show at FYF last year, you would think […]

Death Grips to headline The Glass House in Pomona after FYF Fest

As previously reported, the controversial shock-value band got booked for FYF again this year (since they’re apparently back together).

Caribou and Koreless put fans under harmonious electronic spell at Fonda Theatre

This past Friday, Caribou and Koreless came out and put on a hell of a show at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. I’m not sure if the crowd was on ecstasy or if they were just extremely moved by the music. They were definitely under some kind of harmonious of a spell as they swayed […]

FYF Fest 2014 Fashion Photos: It’s beginning to look a lot like another music festival…

From laid back boho fashion, to the scantily clad cries for attention, where you’d think it was Electric Daisy Carnival — FYF Fest 2014 brought out the wildest fashion we’ve seen at the festival yet. As the once DIY music event expands and garners attention away from the indie crowd and towards the mainstream, your […]

Deafheaven transforms FYF crowd into a group of feral banshees

Sometimes it’s pretty cool when you don’t have enough writers credentialed at FYF Fest to cover the entire event. Why? Because we get to pluck our favorite Tweets and Instagrams from the fans themselves. That’s exactly what we did for Deafheaven’s moving and memorable performance. Our photographer had covered both of their FYF shows, but our […]

Because we get to pluck our favorite Tweets and Instagrams from the fans themselves. That’s exactly what we did for Murder City Devils‘ incredible set.

Julian Casablancas and Albert Hammond Jr. did double duty at FYF Fest, playing with The Voidz  and Albert’s solo act (respectively) on Saturday night before headlining the festival’s final night with the rest of The Strokes. The crowd grew uneasy as 10-15 minutes passed after the listed 10:25 pm start time, but once they took the […]

Presidents Of The United States Of America receive mad respect at FYF

“Anytime there is a list of the Top 10 Bands of the ‘90s…the top 100 bands of the…the top 1000 bands of the ‘90s, we’re never on it,” said Presidents of the United State of America frontman Chris Ballew towards the end of their enthusiastic set Sunday afternoon at FYF Fest.

Blood Brothers wax nostalgic on FYF Fest crowd, show no signs of rust

It’s likely a fair amount of people that saw The Blood Brothers’ reunion at FYF Fest on Sunday night sustained some injuries — but it is equally fair to assume that the bloodshed was worth it. “I had been trying to get them for two and a half years,” FYF’s Sean Carlson told the LA […]

The Bronx rage at FYF Fest with awesome crescendo and rambunctious mosh pit

Los Angeles’ own hardcore punk rockers The Bronx kicked off a string of sets at The Trees stage at FYF Fest on Sunday that would get rowdier and rowdier. Serving as a lead-in to Murder City Devils and The Blood Brothers, the set built to an awesome crescendo that featured a rather rambunctious mosh pit. […]

Thundercat takes FYF Fest on a bass-filled adventure

Los Angeles-based bass guitar extraordinaire, Thundercat’s FYF Fest set was filled with incredible solos on Sunday later afternoon, but the former Suicidal Tendencies member showed there is much, much more to him than the metal stylings of his former band. Stephen Bruner lived up to the Thundercat moniker, donning a sweet fur animal hat of sorts […]

Mac DeMarco’s FYF Fest performance even gets the security guards wildin’ out

Perhaps paying homage to the 12-day long ultimate marathon happening on FXX, Mac DeMarco donned a Simpsons t-shirt featuring Homer and Marge. His stage banter was on point on the main stage on Sunday at FYF Fest, but more importantly, he delivered the goods as he blasted through an entertaining set that had quite a […]

The DC-born and Los Angeles-based R&B singer gave people an enjoyable ride as they escaped the heat for a half-hour. The coolness […]

Benjamin Booker gives early FYF attendees their money’s worth on Sunday

When I saw The Naked & Famous on Thursday night at The Echoplex, who happened to be upstairs playing a well-attended set but Benjamin Booker? Though I didn’t get a chance to see him that night, enough people recommended him for FYF Fest that he became must-see to start Sunday’s festivities. I wasn’t misguided. Booker […]
