The Los Angeles State Historic Park has become a popular location for musical events, and this weekend is no exception. The FYF Fest is back for its 10th year and will be hitting Los Angeles August 24 to August 25. The F’ Yeah Festival will be featuring 71 different bands that will perform throughout the course of two days. The LA State Historic Park will open its gates Saturday and Sunday at 2PM and is scheduled to end at midnight.
While the festival features various musical performances, there will be a few headliners that have made this an event you won’t want to miss. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are the headliners for Saturday and this New York band is no stranger to being front and center at musical festivals. The band recently released their fourth album, Mosquito in April. Sunday’s headliner will be My Bloody Valentine, a band from Ireland that broke up in 1997, came back together in 2007 and will be playing in their first American gig since 2009. The band has since gained notoriety and released a new album earlier in 2013, which spurned into a world tour.
FYF is expecting to draw in thousands of musical fans this weekend. Single day tickets are now sold out, but the 2-day passes are still a third of the price of other musical festivals. Other bands include TV On The Radio, Deerhunter, Yo La Tengo, MGMT, Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, Death Grips,The Breeders and FLAG. The festival will also feature comedy showcases, making this weekend’s event one you won’t want to miss!
