FYF Festival poster

Brooklyn may have just had the Northside Festival, but Los Angeles is indeed keeping up on their end of the country this September during Labor Day Weekend.  What better way to wind down your summer than with celebratory tunes from The Rapture, !!!, The Oh Sees, Best Coast and more?  The 7th annual FYF FEST is happening at the Los Angeles Historic State Park in downtown LA on September 4th, 2010.

Sean Carlson, only 24 years old, founded the festival, which evolved from one he started when he was 18 years old, in various venues throughout Echo Park.  He’s now turned it into a vast, outdoor, three stage event, not unlike its successful sister festival “Mess With Texas”, which takes place in Austin every year during SXSW. Sean has been booking the festival with the help of Keith Morris, frontman of Off!, The Circle Jerks and Black Flag, since its third year, and it has now become one of the largest music festivals to take place in the Los Angeles area.

The 2010 Lineup includes:

THE RAPTURE, PANDA BEAR, !!!, UNBROKEN, THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, DEAD MAN’S BONES,SLEEP, TED LEO & THE PHARMACISTS, MAN MAN, ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFFITI, DELOREAN, COLD CAVE, 7SECONDS, THEE OH SEES, WASHED OUT, DAVILA 666, SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS, AA BONDY, THE BLOW, BEST COAST, TITUS ANDRONICUS, WAVVES, THE SOFT PACK, ABE VIGODA, WARPAINT, OFF!, VETIVER, CEREMONY, BIG FREEDIA, SCREAMING FEMALES, MAGIC KIDS, THE GROWLERS, LOWER DENS, LET’S WRESTLE, CULTS AND MORE!

FYF FEST has just joined forces with a presenting partner, Altamont Apparel, yet the event could not happen without the continued support from INCASE, SESAC, Royal Elastics, Sailor Jerry, and the California State Park Rangers.
