    I rode by LA State Historic Park on the gold line on my way to the fest. It was basically a dirt lot with some trees and what looked like the early stages of construction of a structure that could very well have been an amphitheater.

    Gripes:

    • Only 1 entrance. With it being such a big venue, surely one more could have been open on the opposite side.

    • Limiting the outer coliseum portion. Why was the space limited? Crowd flow would have been much easier if this space was opened.

    • Only 1 entrance to the sports arena. Why? Opening up the 2nd floor was wise for the 2nd day, but it should have been open day one.

    • Poorly positioned food trucks.

    • No art.

    • Terribly boring fyf merch... $40 for what creativity?...

    • No recycling.

    • "Best Weekend Of The Summer" Don't act like you know me.

    If a response is that they didn't have the staff to open up these portions initially, I will scoff and laugh.

    This was somehow more of a clusterfuck than any edc I've attended there.

    Good on ya:

    • Sound was pretty on point for every set I saw (sans a couple acts in the Arena). So that's a huge plus.

    • Pretty good food.

    • Bulleit.


    Top Acts:

    Slowdive
    Darkside
    Daphni
    Grimes
    Ryan Hemsworth

    Despite missing out on some early acts (and a lot due to conflicts), all in all again, a very enjoyable FYF. Hopefully they get more organized and think things out a bit more so.

    Top 5:

    1. Darkside
    2. Ty Segall
    3. Caribou
    4. Slint
    5. Jamie XX

    The festival was poorly run the first day, but nothing like the clusterfucks at EDC at the same location (although EDC is bigger). I was expecting worse, actually, given what I've seen and heard about EDC there and what I know about FYF's organization and event management in the past. Sound was great and while I was leaving arena during Chet Faker to go to the beer garden it became clear that it was going to take awhile to get anywhere and that the arena would be full, so I adjusted my expectations of what I'd get to see/when I'd need to leave accordingly. So, although I myself ran into virtually no problems at the festival, I could clearly see that others were hitting mishap after shitty experience so it definitely made my experience less great. It's not fun when you realize other people around you are having such a hard time.

    Just received this email.

    To all 2014 FYF Attendees,

    We want to thank you for coming to the festival this year. We got off to a rough start on Saturday but worked hard to fix these issues for Sunday. We hope that you noticed the changes and had a great time.

    We have already begun planning for next year and are ready to make FYF Fest the best experience possible for you, the fan. I know a few of you may not have plans to come back but hopefully in the future you will hear about how smooth things have become and will change your mind.

    A couple things we want to address, there was miscommunication with our security team as they had attendees throw away reusable water bottles at the entrance. This is our fault and we are addressing the issue. In turn, if you had your water bottle thrown away at the entrance please contact us at info@fyffest.com with the subject line "water bottle" by next Wednesday.

    As for The Arena, not having the seats opened and accessible on Saturday was a mistake on our part. We want you to know that we are inviting all of those artists back to play FYF Fest and they will be on an outdoor stage. They may not all play next year, as they have their own schedules to work with, but we plan to have them all back soon.

    Your thoughts are important to us. Please send us an email at comments@fyffest.com on what you would like to see changed.

    Hope to see you next year.
    Sean & FYF
    What I'm taking from it:

    "We're sorry you couldn't see that band you paid us to see. In return, we will give you an opportunity to buy an additional ticket in the future to see that band you had already bought a ticket to see."

    They're guaranteeing a Darkside reunion at a future FYF? Sweet.

    So could Darkside repeat? jk

    Thats interesting that theyll attempt to do that, but that means a third of the line up will be repeats, nobody will buy that. and considering theres a handful of bands they just rebook already, everyone will thinks its just this years line up with a couple of other things. hmmmmm

    Did people really have trouble getting into Darkside though? Sunday wasn't the issue, I thought it would be Chet Faker, Todd Terje, Caribou and Four Tet that would get invited back.

    Yes, security created some serious bottlenecking by putting up a gate before the turnstiles and only allowing one person through at a time.

    Also, if you wanted to move from the floor to seats(which I did because I'm an old man on the inside), you had to exit the entire arena and then walk back to re-enter through the turnstiles.

    Yep. They had someone whose job was to guard the up escalators so nobody could use them.

    I was planning to see Darkside but saw a huge bottleneck at the entrance and didn't want to deal with it so I went and saw someone else.

    I wanted floor for Darkside, came too late for that. At least I caught the entire set in the seats though. Bummed that I missed out on Chet Faker. It was a mess getting into the arena. Every other set I caught in the arena I was fine getting in and out of.

    FUCK YEAH. Thanks, Kevin!!!! That camera paid off. I had no idea you were shooting with an actual camera. I should have gone up with you when you asked, everyone I was with was NOT into Ty Segall at all. They hated his voice. At least Mark gave the music props and said Ty Segall knew how to sing "sometimes". But pretty much everyone else I was with did not like it one bit.

    edit: i could do without the girl explaining ty segall to her friends between every song though!

    Yeah, that shit was pretty ridiculous. Didn't think we were going to get in at first. Just glad our group left Blood Orange a bit early.

    Bummer!!! I loved it, next time you can come up front with us and rock out.

    as for the girl, I had to hold back the laughter while I was filming. I wanted to make sure she came out loud and clear so I could listen to her Ty history lesson.

    If you decided to go to the arena at 8 pm, it was a problem. Before that, not so much.

    I didn't bother trying to see Darkside since the crowd was too big. I doubt it was single file because I did not see a single person go in.
