Maybe it’s my unbridled love affair with nostalgia speaking, but I think FYF Fest might have just won the lineup award for 2017, with Goldenvoice somehow managing to beat out their ‘other’ festival. They’ve created an incredible bridge of amazing music from the nineties with A Tribe Called Quest, Nine Inch Nails, and Bjork through the 2000’s to today with Frank Ocean, Anderson .Paak, and Run the Jewels. They also managed to secure the elusive Missy Elliott‘s only 2017 tour date and the legendary Iggy Pop. It also feels worth noting the prevalence of non-white performers, and non-male performers throughout the lineup.
Comedy also returns to the 14th iteration of FYF with Hannibal Burress, set to take place July 21-23 at Exposition Park in Downtown Los Angeles.
FYF Fest General Admission weekend passes will be available for $299 plus fees and weekend VIP passes available for $549 plus fees. Weekend passes go on sale Friday, March 24th at 12PM PDT. Single Day GA passes will be available for $125 plus fees and be available in mid-April. For all ticketing info, FAQ, and news, please visit fyffest.com.
