The annual punk-ish festival has grown by leaps and bounds since its 2011 partnership with Goldenvoice, and the headliners for the Aug. 23 and 24 event reflect that. Onetime Coachella headliners Phoenix,
Grimes, Blood Orange, Future Islands, Todd Terje and Kelela are some of the highlights on an equally strong undercard.
This is the first year that the festival will move to the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park. Its usual home, Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown, is undergoing extensive renovations.
Last year's 10th anniversary festival drew over 30,000 fans for each of the two days. FYF Fest founder Sean Carlson has said, "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."
