I know you’re all excited for this coming weekend and spending it out at Exposition Park with your best buds and some amazing music at FYF Fest. Set times and maps are out and available HERE. But we want to help you get in the mood and start the vibe a little early! So what we did is go through the entire lineup and piece together a sweet little playlist to help get you through the rest of the week.
We did skip some of the headlining names and dig a little deeper and also feature some acts that we’re REALLY excited to see. Tycho, Todd Terje, Les Sin, XXYYXX, Chet Faker, Darkside, Twin Peaks and Caribou are just some that are on the list and you can start streaming it below or just following us on Soundcloud.
Hopefully we’ll see you guys at FYF Fest when we get down and dirty in the pit or work up a sweat in the arena with DJ Harvey!

The excitement is building and we cannot wait for this weekend for some good times at FYF Fest! The best weekend of summer will have performances by The Strokes, Phoenix, HAIM, Todd Terje, Grimes, Flying Lotus, Darkside, Tycho, Jamie XX, Four Tet, Mac DeMarco, Ty Segall, Ryan Hemsworth and so many more. Set times for this weekend have finally been announced so you can plan out your days at the fest. We’ve included each schedule below.
Along with the set times the festival map has also been released which is a completely new layout. The grounds are HUGE and will take over everything from the lawn in front of the Natural History Museum all the way to the other side of the coliseum where the main stage will sit on the blacktop parking lot. The Sports Arena will house an indoor dance stage to keep it nice and dark all day long.
FYF Fest will be held at the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park. Its a new venue for all of us that have been going to the fest every year, but with some major perks. How does ACTUAL bathrooms and less dirt clouds sound? The location is also right off of the Metro Expo Line for a cheap ride to the fest. The trains will also be running until 2am to make sure you get home.
Hopefully you got your tickets to the sold out FYF Fest. We’ll be there in full force and get you some shots of the performances taking place throughout the weekend. We look forward to seeing you all there!
