    Default FYF 2014

    What's the word on this? Seems like this time last year, we already had dates. With the temporary unavailability of the venue for renovations, I can't help but be paranoid that the festival may sit 2014 out.

    Also - any ideas where else this could be held? The one spot that comes to mind for me would be the Dodgers Stadium parking lot. The west side of the lot alone is many times larger than State Historic Park, though as a new LA transplant, I have no idea if that venue would ever do anything like this.

    FYF hasn't sat out since it was a thing, even when all of the investors dropped out and they had to rely almost completely on volunteer workers and deep discounts from mostly local bands to get it going. It's gonna happen.

    If they went smaller with it for a year, they could use the Barnsdall Art Park in Los Feliz. It has an indoor theater and space enough to set up two decently sized stages, but it becomes a clusterfuck if there is too many people around. It has the added benefit of being right by a metro stop. They could also do something like Bloom Fest, which sets up in the streets of the Arts district. They accommodate quite a few people with that set up and it didn't feel overly crowded.

    The facebook page has been active, asking "who do you want to see at FYF Fest 2014?", so i'm not too worried about it at this point.

    Also, Bloom Fest didn't happen this year because the city didn't want to close the streets down over here. They were talking about having it in the fall completely inside businesses, but that never materialized either.

    That's a bummer. Bloom Fest was a cool little deal and it drew a ton of people to the arts district.

    Loved the FYF in 2012 that I got to go to and I hope this festival continues to do awesome things.

    They should be able to have it around the Coliseum, similar to odd future carnival, if they can get the permit for more of the area. Edc used the sports arena parking lot and the field right in front of the coliseum to place stages,
    So its doable.

    Not if OutKast is planning on doing 40 festivals. But I have a feeling that FYF will go differently.

    If they were to get Outkast, it would mean a substantial jump in ticket price, I think. But that really wouldn't work at FYF and would change the crowd in a really huge way.

    I went to a Warped tour that held in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium one year, that was a pretty interesting place for a huge multi-stage rock festival.

    Debatable whether or not they're too big, but FYF wouldn't book a non-rock act as a headliner. I think Antwon was the one rap act booked for 2013.

    If youre picking somebody from Coachella, its Beck and Neutral Milk Hotel at the top. Other than that, it's a guessing game as to who FYF will go after in regards to headliners.

    I think they'll get The National as one of the headliners. After the Shrine show and no Coachella appearance it'd make sense.

    The Great Park of Orange is a horrible venue. Warped Tour was a mess. I couldn't imagine a bigger festival like FYF moving there.

    Underachievers was by far one of the most memorable sets of the festival, imo.

    And I agree, my vote would be NMH out of any of those. They're right up FYF's ally

    Would NIN work as a headliner here? Sounds crazy at first, but the more I think about it, the more I think it could happen.
