The FYF Fest announced their lineup yesterday. My Bloody Valentine and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs headline. The two-day festival takes place Saturday August 24 and Sunday August 25 at the L.A. State Historic Park (the Cornfield). Other notable acts include TV on the Radio, Beach House, Kurt Vile & the Violators, Charles Bradley, Baroness, Foxygen and the Orwells.
The festival began in 2004 in Echo Park as the Fuck Yeah Fest. This will be its fifth year at the Cornfield and its second as a two-day festival. Although ticket prices have increased 500 percent since FYF’s first year at the State Historic Park (in 2009 when notable talent was Avi Buffalo, Dan Deacon and Wavves, tickets were $20 for the one-day festival), in recent years since Goldenvoice has produced the event it has been better managed and more enjoyable than the early dusty days at the L.A. State Historic Park.
Tickets go on sale at noon this Thursday May 16 and are available at local record stores including Origami Vinyl and Amoeba Records, and online. Tickets start at $99 General Admission for the weekend and $199 VIP for the weekend.
