I would love for it to be at Whittier Narrows, not because it makes sense but because it so close to where I live. By the way I was just there yesterday, feeding the ducks with my daughter. I was taking a look at the park and it's surrounding area, and can't imagine how they are gonna set this up. They have carnivals and other types of festivals there all the time but can't imagine how things are going to be set up for HARD or FYF if they end up having it there. Traffic is going to be a fucking nightmare. The logistics people are going to have a lot on their plate for a festival of this scale. We'll see what happens.
What Pitchfork crossover would you expect on the lineup? I like that lineup a lot, but not enough to fly to Chicago for it, so hoping for a decent crossover at FYF.
2/28 Warpaint @ Fais Do-Do, 4/10 St. Vincent @ The Cosmopolitan, 5/2 Desert Daze, 5/8-10 Levitation

Does FYF Sean jizz over Kendrick? Ever talked about him? Then you have your answer. Kendrick is more likely to play Odd Future Carnival.
Add Jon Hopkins, Mutual Benefit and Cloud Nothings for crossover. And also, we should consider Slint as a lock. Fyf was pushing that documentary big time, usually a good gauge of whats coming.
Hearing the new site is at Expo Park. Looking it up on google earth I don't understand how that's going to work but it's right off the expo line so the train from Culver City will be convenient.

He'll probably be at HARD Summer if anything.
He's in Germany 8/2.. So no go for hard.. I can see him being one of the few dj acts playing Fyf fest..
He doesnt really seem to fit the vibe of fyf. If anything I could see moderat jon hopkins and then there these two guys who never ever play it, but this is there year.........SMD
you are soooooooo good lookin
not sure about him, but i know of 2 other electronic acts that people will be fired up about
guessing one is moderat.
