    For sure? Wasn't this supposed to happen before? If so, I would consider giving it another chance, pending lineup.

    My Mourning Jacket just announced their tour dates. They're not coming any further west then CO. Their last announced date is august 26th.

    Love to see them extend to September 1st or 2nd in LA.

    They're going to be extending this tour to LA. They're not doing FYF.

    Sorry, FYF is changing. They're still going to book hard-core/punk acts. But it's changing to "Coachella Jr." / "Coachella lite"

    FYF is presenting 'Beach House' at the El Rey. There's more likely to be a mosh-pit at a 'My Mourning Jacket' show, then at a 'Beach House' concert.

    Has anyone mentioned how solid this thread is? Excellent so far!

    I had a great time last year. Kid Dynamite, Explosions, Descendants, OTC. All great!

    Refused and The Buzzcocks were such a blast at this last Coachella- they'd both easily fit in at FYF.

    They wanted to last year, but looked like too much red tape. Now with 2 days, I would not want to imagine them actually trying to pull this off in the park. With HARD doing 2 days barely a month before, the fields would be ruined pretty badly to begin with.

    So what you're saying is they're probably going to have it at the park again.

    I would think so. They can a permit to play in the park.

    I don't seem to remember anything positive about TedLeoMD.


    I do hope there is a day by day breakdown. I have a sinking suspicion one day will be far better than the other.

    TeLeoMD taught us all about brunchwave, that was pretty important.

    Dude what is that? I feel like im on here loads that and miss great stuff. Maybe my brain blocks it out for my own good.


    Also, the idea of seeing some of these bands on concrete/blacktop scares me. Pretty sure I would have died in the Descendents last year if it was hard(er) ground.

    Trying to find it, can't remember exactly, but it was something like, "Brunchwavers are people that live in this particular neighborhood of Brooklyn and ride bicycles on Sunday to the flee market, eat brunch together, and listen to so and so shitty bands."

    I did find this though:

    FYF used to do 2-day fests and the split was pretty even. There always seemed to be a more punk day and a more psych day.

    Ala LA Detour? Interesting.... I will give it a thumbs up over that terrible park.

    I saw the Beetroots at the top of the steps of City Hall, no noise bleed from other stages at all

    Didn't they say they we're doing that last year? And will they really shut down city streets around city hall for a two day concert?

    Yeah, my ticket stub has the city hall block address on it. And yeah, other fests have done such thing and some even in the same location. Just need the permits and have your shit together (often an FYF issue).

    TeLeoMD's was certainly one of the better flame-outs from last year.

    i wouldn't get any hopes up for a line up much earlier than last year, so you're gonna have to wait a month probably. Fest is still 4 months out.
