This weekend I headed down to FYF and I gotta be honest, the slew of last minute cancellations left me with a funny feeling in my belly. Besides the whole Frank/Kanye diabolical, ultimate dad rock outfit Deerhunter wasn’t going to be there to perform one of my all time favorite albums, Halcyon Digest. Not to mention the tragic cancellation of Ben UFO and Joy Orbinson due to visa troubles. But despite all of that, I was presently surprised by the talent and minor changes the festival had put into action this year.

3The nightmare of last year was entering the arena, keeping the crowd barricaded outside until \finally opening the doors to a mob of angry festival goers. This year a separate entrance for the floor was put in place, and festival goers waited in a constantly moving line to enter. No panic attacks for this girl. The layout was no different than last year, and the trek from The Lawn (the second largest stage) to the Main Stage was long enough to make most attendees exhausted. Yet despite my aching feet, the diverse group of artists and positive energy of the crowd kept my spirits high. I saw so many wonderful and talented people, but somehow I narrowed my favorites down to five. Check out my quick recap of each after the jump, and get ready for a wild ride.

The writer’s out in LA are currently enjoying the long nights out, the sweaty humid days, and of course, all of the festivals that come as the reward for dealing with bad traffic, smog, and reality TV stars.

What the team is really excited for is the upcoming FYF festival. So excited, that we gathered some of our favorite songs from artist’s on the lineup to get everyone ready for the fantastic times ahead.

The festival will be on this August 22 and 23rd, and while so many of the Festivals in Southern California happen in “the greater Los Angeles area (Indio, Palm Springs, San Bernadino, Pomona), this one happens to be directly in the city at the The LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park.

With a killer lineup, FYF is set for another successful year. Purchase tickets via their site, and check out their roster and our playlist below.
