These were some really awesome shots, superfan. Who did you shoot for?
Top 5 sets from FYF:
1) Spiritualized -- Seen em twice this year already, but oh goodness, the Arena was the perfect booking. Was first set of the day for me and I was dead tired, but smoking a J...
Saturday: Alvvays > Tennis > Dinosaur Jr > Goldroom > Run the Jewels > !!! > Chet Faker > Savages > Bloc Party > Frank Ocean > Jesus & Mary Chain
Sunday: Girlpool > Tobias Jesso Jr. > Unknown...
What's your best recommendation in terms of gaining loyalty chips? Is 400,000 doable over the next month?
Are you guys still able to get tickets through myVEGAS? Says sold out in the store and it's only 8AM here. When do they re-generate?
I will be there! Saw them at Apogee Studios in Santa Monica perform the entire new album, room of about 50, was so damn good I had goosebumps. Looking forward to seeing them at such a beautiful venue!
Anyone know cheapest way to buy bulk tickets last minute? Will be looking for 8 wristbands when I get paid next Friday.
Looking for these sets if they're around! And THANK YOU to those who have uploaded ones previously.

Guess you were right
Exactly. BottleRock caters to the bougey crowd and I feel as though the GA part of the sale is so the bands are playing to people who are actually interested. I said as much about not really fitting...
Here's my full review of BottleRock. Thanks for all the well wishes on the eye.
??? Those people weren't acting like assholes until that exact moment. And I didn't get involved until security was in the pit and IN BETWEEN US and when I thought nobody would be stupid enough to...
I got sucker punched in the eye on Friday after Cage the Elephant and got a black eye. Here is the long-version of it:
When Cage the Elephant ended, that's when things took a turn for the worst....
Amazing festival. Had a condo a 10-minute walk from the fest, right on the beach. Found it through Reddit, shared it with 6 people I never knew before. All in same age range, all cool people. Met a...
Foo Fighters were amazing Friday. Covered The Face, Queen/Bowie, the Stones. Brought out Preservation Jazz Hall Band for a song.
Sylvan Esso, Jenny Lewis, Father John Misty were other highlights...
I'm SO EXCITED for this weekend.
I'm in a condo a 10 minute walk from the gates and I checked out the pre-party today. Love the setup, can't wait for tomorrow!
If anyone wants to meet up, hit...
Loved the vibe of this fest. People throwing around frisbees on softball field near main stage. People sitting in hammocks. Everyone super chill. No ravers because this was an all-rock fest. A lot of...
I am also worried this fest will be oversaturated by DJs now that Insomniac is involved. So far, it is my favorite festival that I have attended. Just perfect setup, vibe, great lineup, everything...
Could've gone to this for free with a +1 but of course it happens the same day as the biggest boxing match in history. Dammit. I LOVE Warpaint.
Fuck whoever made that FYF poster and got my hopes up. Assholes.
I've just booked my accommodations. Bummed that set times don't stagger but I get that it is because some stages are right next to each other. Makes it hard to split sets though. Pixies vs. Brand New...
2. Jenny Lewis
3. Lykke Li
What weekend? Weekend 1 I did acid for the first time and met up with friends and it was hitting me REALLY HARD during Brand New
Does anyone know what time those late night shows start? Would love to see Marina and the Diamonds but only if I'm not missing a headliner (unless it's Drake)
Is anyone doing Shaky Knees this year that has extra room where they are staying? Obviously willing to throw down on things but am rolling solo and would prefer not to have to do it on my own
So for the weekend, we booked a guy named Scott to take our group to and from the festival each day for basically $20 a head in a 10-seat van.
The way there was no problem. The way back had lots...
Tycho, Angel Olsen definitely other favorites of mine. Phox is pretty great live but I've gotta be in the chill mood for that set. If timing is I'm really hungover or about to be ON one, I want...
I wrote something for the blog I'm covering Coachella for on 9 lesser-known acts you should check out.
Check it out and share who in the small print on the poster we should check out! I've gotten...
I've been able to backdoor my way into a lot of these events' lists through e-mailing publicists since I didn't decide on attending early enough to lock up a press pass. Got a couple interviews...
RSVP for Universal Music Group showcase, acts to be announced later:
Where is the go-to spot to go for SXSW research? I just booked my flight and am doing last minute research using mostly Spotify playlists to get up to speed.
Obviously there are a number of known...
Phantogram at Brooklyn Bowl on Monday. Never been but bought tix. Anyone else gonna be there? They're excellent live.
Damn. Wasnt thinking of going until a friend just hit me up and said she's moving to Austin week before SXSW, meaning I have free place to crash. I'm very close to pulling the trigger.
Anyone driving from SoCal to The Gorge? Looking for a ride/camp share.
After being vastly underprepared and outgunned, I want to do it up at Coachella camping this year. I want to get some music and lights setup at our site but am wondering how safe it is...
This is must-see for me after doing some research. Praying it's at sunset.
Here's what I mined from that AMA:
Drake (most likely)
Florence + The Machine
Death From Above 1979
My Morning Jacket (most likely)
Saw Warpaint play a show at The Roxy last night. Seen them four times, last night was my favorite. Well, Weekend 2 of Coachella was my favorite but that was not just for musical reasons...
I'm probably going to utilize airbnb.
Expecting them to bring out Zach from RAGE
This will be the first leg of my six-weekend festival circuit. Looking forward to this big time. Never been to a music festival east of Las Vegas.
Tickets to this event sold out insanely fast. Looking for two tickets, would pay well above face value.
They got kicked out of Life is Beautiful for destroying an amp or something, lol.
A friend of mine I went to middle school with's brother is in this band.
Danish singer MØ is one of my first discoveries since doing my...
Given the fact that War on Drugs is playing probably ruled out Sun Kil Moon participating...
Florence + the Machine
Angel Olsen will be playing Coachella.
When I saw her in LA last month, I told her I hoped she is going to be there next year because I missed her FYF Fest set due to the complications of the...
Man some of these are really awesome. I went to weekend two and was hoping some more of those would make their way out?
Warpaint's weekend two set was revolutionary for me. I'll definitely put the...
Thanks for the feedback guys.
Could you at least have had it out in the posts section of my review so I coulda got SEO points?
So Sunday night, I caught Lana Del Rey's set near the front of it after seeing Neutral Milk Hotel prior to.
I wrote a review of Lana and how her fans displayed some awful behavior:...
