If those are the headliners I hope the undercard is as good as it was last year, because 2 of those 3 are giant yawns and 1 is a giant yawn depending on what songs they play.
MOdest Mouse headlining one night and MBV headlining another seems dreamy. Throw in some Jawbreaker and I'll jizz.
ps Hope they get the Locust Maybe the Blood Brothers reunion...
I don't know. qotsa? the flaming lips?
Another once great festival gone to total shit
"why are you so annoying" TheKlein25
co plete, total shit. not a speck of enjoyment to be taken from it
Right? It was so much more awesome when they lost all of their funding and had to cut back from two days to one and put it on last minute at the Echo and Echoplex and security were total dicks and kept people from using the indoor stairs? Right?
(even though, that year was pretty great. Red Fang->Fucked Up->Negative Approach? Thank you very much.)
yeah i just enjoy music, setting has never been a big issue for me
Flaming Lips July 31 Pacific Ampitheater
Presale on Wednesday
Part of the oc fair
Explosions was there in 2011. I would think sean wouldn't want to spend that kind of money on a repeat act so soon.
The thing that's tricky with predicting the FYF line up is they seem to pull a lot of bands that will be prominent in the spring/early summer festival circuit for the following year, save a few 2nd tier bands that have been playing all summer.
The question is, are they going to pull more notable acts for the headliner this year? I don't know Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse, or YYY's price tag, but I would assume that it would probably be more then Refused, M83, or Beirut. If thats the case I could forsee another price jump, but I would be willing to spend a little more if the headliners warranted it. And better headliners might be what it takes to get this festival to sell out like the promoters would want.
I think overall though, they should try to work another angle beyond simply the music. The food last year was atrocious, and having to dump my water bottle every time I exited the alcohol corral sure was obnoxious. Not really experiences that leads to raving reviews. Just some things they could improve on that would improve the overall attendees satisfaction and increase over all positive word of mouth in order to help build hype for the next year.

Hopefully Deerhunter end up headlining with this new album!
Deerhunter/My Bloody Valentine as the two headliners would be too good.

just being a wrinkly penis here, but why do people label it "FYF Fest" when i thought FYF stood for fuck yeah fest?
Yes, "people" don't call it FYF Fest, that is the official name of it.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs confirmed for FYF?
Their tour page is not powered by Songkick. Looks legit to me.
