2014 FYF Fest Announces Its Line-Up

Summer has arrived in California, we had torching temperatures this week reaching the 100s in the valley, meanwhile FYF fest founder Sean Carlson dropped the line up of the festival on KCRW this Friday morning…. This is truly summer time.

Once again, the festival will spread over the whole weekend, but there is a big change this year, the fest has moved to a new location, the Sports Arena and Exposition Park, since the Los Angeles State Historic Park is in renovation… It’s gonna be an outdoor/indoor event next to USC, so I guess lots of nearby students are gonna be happy about this.

Phoenix and the Strokes are the two headliners, and let’s just say I am not superexcited about this although I have never seen the Strokes and it could be interesting. but Saturday could become a Strokes overdose with Julian Casablancas and Albert Hammond Jr. both playing solo sets earlier in the day.

The bands I really want to see are Interpol of course, and Angel Olsen whom I adore, whereas Seattle’s post hardcore band The Blood Brothers, who will play their first show in 8 years and Slowdive who will play their first LA show in over 20 years are acts not-to-be-missed. There are also many names already familiar, such as Built to Spill and Ty Segall whom I saw several times, Mac Demarco (he played at Burgerama 2 months ago), Grimes (played at Make Music Pasadena), Deafheaven (saw them at the Echoplex), Man Man (saw them at the El Rey), plus Mariachi El Bronx (their other outfit The Bronx is also performing), Connan Mockasin, and Flying Lotus all played at Amoeba. Haim is doing all the festivals, so I am not surprised to see the three sisters among the other names, but there are so many other bands  and some are totally unknown to me!

‘I’m not interested in ever becoming Coachella-sized. That’s a worldwide festival in Southern California, FYF is an L.A. fest, and that’s two completely different things’, Carlson said to the LA Times, and I like it this way. Tickets will be sold on Thursday, May 22nd at Noon PST via festival’s website. Passes will cost $129, which is still an excellent price for two days, whereas VIP passes will be available for $229.
