FYF released the set lists for the 2015 installment of FYF Fest, taking place Saturday and Sunday at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena and Exposition Park. 

With a main stage that packs festival headliners Frank Ocean (Saturday) and Morrissey (Sunday) done by midnight each night, the new 2 a.m. closing time allows festivalgoers to experience late-night electro-headliners Purity Ring (Saturday) and FKA twigs (Sunday) on The Lawn. 

In May, FYF published a cartoon-map of the venue, with a new walkway aimed at cutting down walking time from the Main Stage and the Lawn.

Another addition for 2015, a fifth stage dubbed The Woods, will host expansive afternoon sets, including a 5 1/2-hour set from British disco-revival DJ crew Horse Meat Disco on Saturday and multi-hour sets from DJ Harvey and Leon Vynehall on Sunday.  

Must-see sets to plan your day around should include the lyrically epic performances of Run the Jewels (Saturday evening), the rich grooves of D’Angelo and the Vanguard (Sunday night) and the captivating moves and vocals of fka Twigs. 

The Tree stage will host one of the most intriguing three consecutive sets Sunday night, with noise-rock band Health, alternative hip-hop group Death Grips and fuzzy garage rock band Thee Oh Sees holding back no feeling in three distinct styles. 

This weekend’s FYF Fest marks the 12th year of the festival and its second year at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena and Exposition Park. Gates open at 2 p.m. for both days.
