    I feel like I've read that this year's location has a smaller capacity than last year's, but I can't find any of that sort of information. Yo Bumblebee, where you at?

    Ahhh...I committed to do a work event on Saturday the 23rd because I didn't get tickets during the initial sale. I immediately snatched up 2 tickets when they went on sale today - I am so ridiculously stoked that I now have tickets. I'm going to have to skip out of work early on Saturday and hopefully get to the venue around 4 or 5 pm. This will be my first FYF fest...can't wait!

    Could be the tickets whose payments defaulted as well.

    Using an arena that should be able to hold 15,000 with a ga floor setting, plus a significant amount of space around the park/coliseum should make it about the same, or even more.

    Ha, I was at a show when that got posted, surprised nobody else jumped on it.

    Maybe, but they still arent sold out yet. Did that many people default? I think they end up gone tomorrow, since most likely people get paid. Also, there could have been a possibility that they revisited capacity with the fire marshall and were able to squeeze it in on the permit.

    While this year selling out seemed inevitable, I think the quickness (less than a month, if I recall?) caught a lot of people off-guard, so I'm glad many of you got another chance after all without going the Stubhub route. Also seems like there's a decent enough allotment made available here that everyone has notice and doesn't miss seeing the window to buy them. If you wait this time and miss out, you can only blame yourself.

    And yeah, I'm extremely curious about the capacity this year. I'm honestly more interested to see the map than I am to see the set times.

    I'm also very curious about the setup of the new venue. I wish they'd utilize the Coliseum for fests like this because I liked the old EDC and the LA Rising setups and the Coliseum is just a cool place in general to have shows in. And because it's not as big as EDC, the flow going in and out would be much smoother and there is a lesser chance of people doing stupid shit like hopping fences and causing riots.

    As long as it's not too overcrowded and we're able to get from stage to stage semi-easily and quickly, I'll be happy.

    I hope The Strokes and Interpol dont play inside the sports arena. It used to get all hot and crowded when they used to throw Monster there, and its gonna make it hard to bounce from stage to stage get a good spot.

    What? The Strokes are most definitely, 100% playing inside.

    Thats what I was guessing, but I was hoping they'd use the colussium instead of the sports arena. Like the old EDC setup vs the Monster Massive set up.

    I do not think the Coliseum is being utilized at all. Those events had more than 100,000 people attending and this wi going to be like 20,000+

    They clearly mentioned they'll be utilizing the sports arena and NOT the coliseum...

    They could just put the stage in the middle and only use half of the Coliseum, but I'm thinking it's more because of the liabilities that come with holding an event in there? The owner(s) of the coliseum probably don't want to deal with what happened at EDC, especially when it won't generate anywhere near the profit EDC gets.

    But as an attendee, I miss the Coliseum and hope to see some more shows/fests there in the near future.

    Honestly, my initial reason for staying away from FYF was the thought of seeing anything inside the Sports Arena again. Now that the Forum is all prettied up, the Sports Arena is easily the worst arena venue in Los Angeles. I saw Pearl Jam there recently and made it through. But it's a crap-hole of a venue.

    Ya, it's bad. It's pretty much a stone mausoleum. Concrete everywhere. The sound system is average at best on a good day. The acoustics tie back to all that concrete- bad, bad, bad. Still, I have managed to see some decent shows there and not leave thinking all that much about it. Don't fret, it's going to be good times.

    Not sure if you guys know yet but what part of Exposition Park will they be using. I haven't walked around the entire park but is there that much room for outdoor stages between all the museums? I'm under the assumption they won't be using the Rose Garden. Just wondering since I will be at Uforia the week before.

    Yes, theres room. If they were able to have Odd Future Carnival in one tiny area of the whole arena/stadium/park, itll be perfectly fine for the whole festival.

    FYF is around the Sports Arena, not the museums. Check it out on Google maps. I don't know anything about Uforia, or that every event will be utilizing the space in the same way.
