    If you go the fyf website, you will see that the "ada" section officially announced that the festival will take place at the exposition park and sports arena

    Looks like prices went up too?

    GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS:
    Weekend Passes for FYF Fest are $120 and are only available online at the FYF Box Office.

    SINGLE DAY TICKETS:
    Single Day tickets are no longer available.

    Single day tix were sold last yr, yeah?

    $21 increase. Lineup better be worth it because if it's in any way inferior to their My Blood Valentine coup of last year, that won't make sense.

    Figured it would go up. But yeah, I really hope the lineup supports the price hike, especially since it's at the sports arena...

    I don't think the ticket info page has been completely updated since last year:

    A Weekend VIP Pass is $199 and go on sale on Thursday, May 16th at 12:00pm

    Going to guess Ceremony will be there based on their new tweet. Hopefully they have a new album, too.

    based on what? even w the price increase, 120 strikes me as a fairly good deal for something of this size. Hardly think the confirmations up to this point have been disappointing.

    A price increase just sets the expectation that the names will get bigger and better, and when you take into consideration the last two years have stepped up in that regard, you think to yourself how they could top a rare get with My Bloody Valentine? But when the names you've only heard are festival redundancies like the National, Modest Mouse and Interpol, the "wow" factor isn't there, and you feel like you're getting less bang for your buck. It's a psychological mind trick festival goers beat themselves up over chronically.

    No one told you to assume those would be the biggest names on the bill.

    Guessing they will utilize the arena for the headliners and the other stages in the surrounding parking lots? Hope it's not baking that day.

    It definitely is.

    Courtney Barnett - 6/5 - The Mohawk
    The Avett Brothers/Old Crow Medicine Show - 6/27 - Whitewater Amphitheater
    Death Grips - 7/18 - The Mohawk
    Kraftwerk - 9/25 - Bass Concert Hall

    The next tier of headliner names would put FYF on par with securing someone as big as Coachella could get and I don't see that happening.

    Even though they're using a 16K capacity venue this time around? Really?

    One of my theories is that the 16k venue might only be used at the end of the night for someone much larger than they've ever had before, so maybe? Can't imagine anyone like they've had filling that entire space, though, especially if it works as their main stage throughout the day. It'll look sad.

    Does the Coliseum allow the EDC setups of old? Or was the debacle of 2010 it's last hurrah?

    The Sports Arena could definitely host someone bigger than they've ever had before. Personally, I feel like it would be too big to be used for acts like The Replacements or Slowdive.

    The thought of using the arena for a stage appeals to me. I can't imagine how hot it's going to be in August.

    Sitting in there with AC on while Slowdive is playing... Bliss.
