    Yeah, in '12, some overly-officious security supervisor thought that normal school-type backpacks were too big. Thankfully, we skated to a line where she wouldn't notice.

    Did you already see this under "Tickets" on their site:
    VIP TICKETS:

    A VIP Ticket gets you access to the festival each day and access to the VIP areas. The area is a beer and liquor garden which acts as a great place to take a moment and chill, meet up with friends and to use as a convenient meeting spot at the fest. All VIP areas will feature exclusive sight lines to their respective stages. Please note you must be 21 years of age or older to enter this area. All VIP Wristbands will be shipped in advance. VIP's also have a separate entrance into FYF Fest. There will be no single day VIP tickets, only weekend passes available online. You must have your VIP wristband to enter each day.

    WEEKEND VIP PASSES ARE SOLD OUT.
    Amenities include:

    - FULL LIQUOR BAR
    - PRIVATE TOILETS
    - EXCLUSIVE FOOD TRUCKS
    - COMFORTABLE COUCHES
    - ACCESS TO SHADE
    - MUCH MORE
    Unless you are asking what the "Much More" is?

    Yeah, I saw that - but check it, word for word: "All VIP areas will feature exclusive sight lines to their respective stages."

    "VIP areas", yet there's only one, and therefore "Their Respective Stages" is very misleading.

    Whoever typed that up is addicted to pluralization, and that sucks.

    Just seems to me they did some lazy planning here, and overpromised/ underdelivered.

    And yes, WHAT THE HELL IS 'MUCH MORE'

    i did that at Burgerama, Viva Pomona, and Growing Up is Dumb this year. great festival tactic.

    here's what it looks like i'll be seeing

    saturday
    Conan Mockasin -> Joyce Manor -> (end of) Slint -> Real Estate -> Avey Tare -> Future Islands -> Run The Jewels (partial) -> Slowdive -> Caribou -> Interpol (maybe 20 minutes worth) -> Boris -> Ty Segall


    sunday
    Twin Peaks -> Joanna Gruesome -> Balance and Composure -> Mac Demarco -> Thundercat -> Built To Spill -> Darkside / Earl halfsies or if all of my friends are going to one of those rather than the other i'll just tag along (seen both before) -> Flying Lotus


    how late do you think the Strokes and Jamie XX are gonna play? Also Deafheaven is an option since they start at 11pm. Not sure how I want to end the fest.

    App lists both The Strokes & Jamie xx sets end at midnight.

    I plan on watching most of Jamie and ending with the Strokes. If you've never seen The Strokes, I'd pick them. Even if their more recent material has been pretty lackluster, their live shows are great.

    i'll probably end up seeing the strokes for old times sake. comedown machine, angles, and first impressions are pretty bad albums but you gotta think they'll end with some stuff from the first 2 albums

    Would love more info on this, and why they're doing a signing. Any possible way they could make a guest appearance for a particular act?

    It appears so. From a couple pages back:

    Oh, hey Drinkey. Since you're logged in and answering metro questions... I am staying on Figueroa & 4th. I checked the Metro Trip planner and it looks like I'll be taking the Silver Line. Is that correct. I am really bad at this stuff Thanks in advance!

    This is correct, coming from Fig and 4th you'd take the Silver Line.

    I'm coming from Los Feliz/Silverlake area, so I'm taking the Red to the Silver

    Wouldn't it be easier to walk down to 7th and Fig and take the Expo line?
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    Isn't the Silver 50 cents? or did that change in the past couple years? I think they're about the same distance, but the Silver is (or used to be) cheap as hell.

    The Silver line is an express bus so cash fare is $2.45. The DASH F route is 50 cents. Also, the Dash and Expo let you off a bit closer.

    Also, if you're taking the rail and require a transfer ie) Red to Expo, just go ahead and buy a Day pass as it will be cheaper.

    Are you staying at the Bonaventure? You can take the silver line, which is a bus line that I haven't used, or you can walk a couple blocks to 7th/Flower and take the Expo Line, which is a light rail. And City Tavern, where we'll be hanging out both days before the fest getting food and drinks is right at 7th and Fig.

    I'll be arriving in Culver City Friday night around 10pm. Any recommendations on what to do in the area that night or the morning before the fest would be awesome. Thx <3
