Thread: First City Festival 2014

  1. #1

    Default First City Festival 2014

    Apparently First City Festival is getting a second year two weeks after Outside lands; I would imagine that means the line-up will be coming out in the next 30 days. Any theories as to who will pop up there?

    I've always loved the lineup for FYF. I noticed that there was a lot of overlap between FYF and First City last year, being that they were the same weekend. Hoping for more of the same this year. Eventually, would love both festivals to join forces and pull a Reading and Leeds so I don't have to fly down to LA every year for FYF.

    I'll be there, if FYF doesn't blow this lineup out of the water. Since every other festival has sold out within a matter of days, I'm guessing I should buy presales for this.

    this is a decent line-up, but I'm pretty sure the FYF Fest line-up will be much better.

    First City is not going to sell out quickly, if at all.

    Miniature Tigers and Midlake are two bands I've wanted at Coachella for years.

    As a Monterey resident all I have to say is: meh. Looks like I will be travelling for FYF despite this festival being in my backyard.

    I just hope that FYF does not book the National. I never understood the allure of that band. Alligator was a good album but that was such as long time ago.

    BTW, this fest did not sell out last year. If it did, it was only because they unloaded lots of tickets on Groupon/SocialLiving.

    You must of missed the national selling two nights out at the greek. They have quite a broad appeal.
    you are soooooooo good lookin

    Unfortunately, FYF just blew this lineup out of the water. Sorry First City, maybe next year.

    I'm surprised that there is absolutely zero overlap between the 2. I also really wish First City wasn't on the same weekend, as my friend has a house within walking distance of this festival that I could stay at.

    Future Islands, Liars, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Tanlines, and Connan Mockasin added. There's your FYF overlap.

    Any word on daily breakdowns for this? I'll be in Petaluma Wed-Fri. Considering either this or FYF.

    As predicted, FCF sent out a 50% offer to last year's ticket buyers. Sorry, but FYF is just far better.
