That cass guy is pretty horrible
and nowBut professional festivals are boring and this is fun... So yeah, we will give you another hint. Get to 250 "likes" & you'll get it
I would get to 250 likes cause this is a VERY good hint. Its going to make a few people go HOLY SHIT FUCK YEAH NO WAY! & Bum out others

DFA 1979 and.........................Not one but two bands are playing FYF that share this zip code- M6K 1L4. Can you guess?
BSS?Hint #2: Neither of the bands from the M6K 1L4 zip code have played FYF... So I guess that means obvious guess isn't going to be there
*based upon tedious fact checking.
Broken Social Scene; that would fit the "begins with B and ends with E" post mentioned yesterday.
I'm starting to think the Weeknd predictions are right. I have a hard time believing Broken Social Scene will be there.
Then again, I had a hard time believing Panda Bear would be there last year (or The Mountain Goats for that matter) so. . .
Also, Weekend (not the The Weeknd) is likely to pay as they're a shoegaze/pschedelic noise group out of the Bay area that FYF has promoted before.

The White Stripes 9/18
Yeah, I appreciate what I think was some sort of defense, but I really have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.
People are talking about The Weeknd AND Weekend playing, seperately. But since The Weeknd is from Toronto and the recent clue said there's 2 bands from Toronto I figured it might be possible, simply because I'm not really sure I believe they go Broken Social Scene for whatever reason.
I'm probably wrong though.
zomg, they wanna tease us more!
Only a few more days till the announcement but we will continue to tease you with hints... Remember Shellac shows on sale today
They should just hold off at this point. It's the weekend, people* won't be paying attention and then Monday or Tuesday we can be mostly surprised. Any idea how soon the early bird tickets sell out (if at all), suprefan?
Edit: *people who are not music nerds attached to the Internet
I don't think Explosions will play either, and I'm not sure why everyone is talking about them.
To be definitive, it'd be rad if The Weeknd OR Weekend played. They both rule. But my comment come from the idea that while The Weeknd playing is relatively improbable, the Toronto zip code hint gave me hope. So really, Weekend has nothing to do with this at all.
The Explosions In the Sky speculation only comes from the fact that they have two CA dates (one in San Diego and one in Big Sur) with the FYF Fest sandwiched right between the two.
Edit: if you need more proof to rethink your thought process. So answer the question, if a band announced an entire fall tour, why have a gap of 3 days at a certain point?
09/01 - Tucson, AZ @ Rialto Theatre
09/02 – San Diego, CA @ SOMA
09/05 – Big Sur, CA @ Henry Miller Library
obviously that is 100% definitive proof
Oh, I didn't even realize EITS had tour dates so close to the fest. Well then, I see that happening.
Last year early bird tickets were 20 dollars as opposed to 25 and they sold out in I think maybe a week or two.
