    VIP will still sell out, as most people in the VIP will put more than 2 VIP tickets up their nose each day.

    FYF missed the opportunity of a lifetime by not booking Powerman 5000. How the fuck am I supposed to relive my Tony Hawk days.

    While I don't want to discount this at all, if you know the area and know where is safe to park, there should be no problem finding street parking for the fest either day, but especially Sunday when some meters aren't checked. The street that provides the backstop to the festival has tons of parking on it, and the surrounding neighborhoods behind that street are not regulated like Hollywood or other areas.

    Still, I'd highly recommend the metro, for ease of service and to avoid any such hassle.

    Pretty much this. Thats the first weekend being back to school and I'd much rather get a day of the festival in as well as enjoy the rest of the long weekend with friends. The lineup (well whichever half for the day I dont go) is great yeah, but nothing that is going to kill me missing out when there is other fun to be had.

    For reference though, when ticketfly sold the Flaming Lips Hollywood Forever two day package last year they sent 2 separate tickets. So many split it with a friend?

    That really wasn't true last year. the meters weren't even the issue. It seemed like there literally was not parking wthin a mile radius. We drove around the entire perimeter for about 70 minutes, it was a fucking nightmare.

    Same issue. My friend bounced after an hour+ of not finding a spot, so I was in there alone the whole time once I finally parked. Hopefully they can work on securing more lots or something this year...

    there is usually tons of parking between broadway & hill on the little side streets. last year parking was fairly easy although it was still $5 and a 10 minute walk, but way better than wasting time & gas.

    worse case scenario, find free parking near a metro station and take the train back and forth.

    Just park at Union Station. There is tons of it there and it costs like $7 or something. The fest is one stop over at the Chinatown stop, or you could walk there in about 15/20 minutes and grab a french dip at Philippes on the way.

    Yeah, I don't know that area at all, so that is why we drove around forever and couldn't find parking. I would love to do the metrolink, but it doesn't run late into Orange County.

    We payed $5 to park in Little Tokyo and took a 2 minute metro ride. Considering the festival has a metro station hovering above, use it.

He then rattled off some various 'big' names including LiveNation and maybe Ticketmaster...then when they came back after a song he said he had to correct his statement since LiveNation was actually involved in the fest to some degree. NBD, just thought it was comical in the moment.

    At least for Goldenvoice shows Origami has a separate allotment of tickets dropped off, I have never even noticed a separate ticketing terminal there.

    Stoked on the lineup. I missed Tanlines at the Echo, hopefully they are on after the sun goes down.

    I hope Rhino gets tickets.

    I don't know how this happened, but I'd never listened to Give Up the Ghost (nee American Nightmare) before. Wes Eisold is the singer, and you might know him as the main dude in Cold Cave. American Nightmare is really awesome old school-sounding hardcore punk. The albums were released under the name Give up the Ghost due to a lawsuit, so you have to search for them, but man this stuff is awesome.

    American Nightmare/GUTG are insane live. I can't recommend them enough. Every show I ever saw was mayhem, in a good way. Watch them, you will not regret it.

    I was really into metalcore during their heyday, and American Nightmare became pretty ubiquitous quickly. The first album Background Music was originally released as American Nightmare, and for a while they toyed with the name American Nothing before going with Give Up The Ghost (complete with an angel logo that was a direct rip-off of an old AFI short).

    I bought Background Music when it first came out but it never really clicked with me. i was more into the more-black metal influenced metalcore stuff at the time, and AN always felt more "tough guy" to me. i re-listened to it for the first time in many years last night and I liked it more than I remembered, but it does sound really dated to me. The guitar work and overall production is truly a product of the hugely burgeoning hardcore scene of the late 90s/early 2000s. I'm definitely interested in checking them out live if they don't have a major conflict though. It will be a total timewarp for me. Maybe I'll bust out some of those old hardcore dancing moves.

    Last year I was able to park like 4 blocks from the fest on the street for free and just walk. Don't know if I was just lucky or if this is normal. But I won't assume I'd be able to do the same again.
