We’ve got a big event announcement to make today. FYF Fest happens Saturday, September 4th at the LA State Historic Park.
If you love:
- legendary punk rock + ethereal indie pop + sheer noise terror
- stand-up comedy
- food trucks
- carnival games & raffles
- vinyl records
- lurking in the blazing hot sun at an indie rock festival
- all of the above
… then you probably already plan on attending this weekend’s FYF Fest. For those of you not yet in the loop here’s the low down:
Nestled between Chinatown and Downtown LA, this all-day concert will feature more than 38 independent artists on three stages, 15 stand-up comedians, a traffic jam of local food trucks, and thousands of music lovers all coming out to laze the day away in LA’s newest state park and celebrate the arts. Bands not to miss: The Rapture, Sleep, The Mountain Goats, Man Man, Abe Vigoda, Cold Cave, Titus Andronicus, The Soft Pack, OFF!, Cults, and Big Freedia “Queen of New Orleans Bounce”. That’s just eleven of 38 artist. Wild.
So how does FYF do it? Good Question.
Every year the unstoppable “geniuses at work” Sean Carlson and Phil Hoelting somehow manage to add more massive stages, more spastic comedians, more fun contests, more general mayhem and more sweaty exhausted faces to their community-based music and arts festival. After four years of sponsoring the event we can only say it just gets weirder, bigger, and better with each passing year. We’re deeply proud of the way our friends have slowly grown FYF into one of the premier independent music festivals on the west coast. Truly a community event, FYF has more heart, guts, and good will than can possibly be explained in this short announcement.
We sincerely look forward to having you with us on Saturday. As always, you bring the water, sunscreen and howls of joy and we’ll supply the shade and free Snap Cases for your iPhone. This one’s gonna be amazing.
