FYF Fest is returning to Exposition Park in Los Angeles this August with a plethora of sensational, offbeat musicians and a medley of genres that are bound to win over the hearts of various music fans worldwide. Let’s take a stroll through LA’s biggest musical festival and daydream with our minds open as we explore this year’s killer lineup…..
Kendrick Lamar – Need I say more? The King of the West Coast is headlining the two day shindig and bringing his prophetic explosive from-the-gut passion to his hometown stage with the familiar tone of memory lane coruscating through his labyrinthine brain.
LCD Soundsystem – It’s true. The Indie Rock band who performed their so-called farewell show on April 11th, 2011 at Madison Square Garden are making their way through the festival circuit and coming together at FYF Fest to grant the wishes of their grotesquely radiant fans.
Tame Impala – The progressively propelling visually and experimentally artistic Aussie psychedelic rock band are dominating the songwriting game and spreading love over celestial ballads and synths packed full of energy; tame the mind mischief and give Tame Impala a listen.
The androgynous Jamaican disco queen, actress, model, producer and multifaceted sensation, Grace Jones, is bringing her larger than life production full of eclectic costume changes and sheer liberal freedom to the city of angels.
The post-rock band out of Texas, Explosions in the Sky, are out to tear apart your auditory senses with haunting tracks and melodic guitar solos which simultaneously emanate an aura of tranquility and muster up festival-goers frenetic energy.
The globetrotting musical master, Gold Panda, who bursted on the scene and wowed electronic junkies with his quirky second studio album, Half of Where You Live, will be in flying through LA to spin a peculiar dose of intricately intimate electronic remixes and add a crowd-pleasing eclectic dash of color.
The Manchester based producer, Andy Stott, will be creeping and crawling through the veins of concertgoers with his emotive theatrical display and hints of angelic melodies that will leave you woolgathering under ambient clouds.
The house and techno guru who has achieved an authentically humble state of self-awareness and has been releasing singles that have had listeners achieving a state of transcendence for almost two decades, Moby, is on board for a DJ set.
Looking for a cohesively brilliant and lusty lad who drowns in poetic fairy tales and takes listeners down a chronological record of skeptical feelings and casual sex encounters with a pinch of intrigue and a dash of mystery? Kelela is the woman for you.
The innovational spell-caster, Grimes, will be in attendance to set the bar high for the remainder of the FYF Fest roster. I advise you to take the time to soar along Claire Boucher’s wavelength and float effortlessly through a kaleidoscopic musical head trip full of heavy beats and the influence of the radical angels high pitched chops that will surely make your jaw drop.
The entire lineup of FYF Fest 2016 is an extremely unique masterpiece. And with the beautiful hue of the LA skyline in sight, the musical memory of a lifetime will be created all throughout the sunlit day and mesmeric night.
