This past Saturday, September 3rd, roughly 21,000 independent music fans made their way to the eighth annual FYF Fest. Featuring more than 40 performing artists and an avalanche of other wacky entertainments (i.e., 4 live music stages, one enormous stand-up comedy tent, multiple beer gardens, a plethora of tasty food trucks, two gigantic shade tents, free bottles of water, grassy knolls, leafy trees, comfy VIP lounges, and lots of weird flashing projections courtesy of videographer Michael Reich).
It was BY FAR the best organized and most fun FYF Fest in the event’s nearly decade-long history. Huge thanks to Sean Carlson, Phil Hoelting, Michael Gutierrez, Mariko Jones, GBV, Dan Deacon and The Descendents, Goldenvoice, The City of Los Angeles and the entire California State Parks Department. We’ll see you again next year.
