Alright now fyffest2013 is playing Rush on Spotify. So either I was wrong or they are fucking with me... if you're watching us FYF, please book Kindness.
FYF will likely be at the L.A. Sports Arena, my sources are telling me.
I think we'll see Man Man on the lineup -- hole in their tour announcement on 8/23 in between Visalia and Flagstaff.
Looks like we've got our headliners people.
you can lock in future islands if we didnt already
Probably not the best place to ask such a general question, but once they finish the renovations to LA State Historic Park, will they open it back up to festivals? I'm guessing not. Everyone seemed to hate that place but I really liked it, especially when the other option is Sports Arena. Pretty sure last time I was there was Together As One 2004. Bleh.
you people need stop hating on Haim, dammit
War on Drugs is playing a festival-heavy summary (a lot across the pond), but has a big gap that included FYF weekend.
I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.
So if true (still hoping against it), I guess headliners get the arena and there will be other stages set up around it...
really hope they don't intend to stick some of the acts indoors ... been a while since I was in the area but isn't there sufficient room around the coliseum for an exclusively outdoor fest of this size?
That was basically my question like 5 pages back, but you articulated it much better. Apparently, it's big enough to accommodate a large fest.
Anything will be better than that dumpy park they usually use. I'd be happy with the outside of the sports arena.
Hammond continued: " I'm looking forward to a smaller show more than a festival show. To me, festival shows are like a very rich dessert before the meal, but it's going to be awesome. I think it was just that Julian was trying to figure out his solo thing and I don't know when he's doing it, but we got this offer and we all agreed on it - but more importantly he agreed on it. He's the leader of the band, and we usually say yes to playing shows. I imagine that'll start something, it always does but it's just too soon. He's swamped with his solo stuff and I can't even begin to stress him out with like 'what are doing?' I know he's singing a song that we recorded and he's in the studio trying to do something, so we'll see."

My biggest problem with them potentially having it at or anywhere around the USC arena is that the crowd will just be a bunch of rich bros and sorority girls who'd not otherwise go or even know that it's happening attending the thing just because of its proximity. I've already made it up in my head that if takes place at USC, I'm not going, but I'm still interested in seeing the lineup because so far, it doesn't sound interesting and it will make me feel less guilty to skip this year if it's weak.
