All the details about one of music's most-anticipated weekends
What started as a small, one-day punk-indie concert has become a massive, highly anticipated weekend festival that is now rivaling Coachella.
This year’s FYF Fest is bringing some of music’s biggest names to Los Angeles, including legendary hip-hop queen Missy Elliott, whose performance at FYF will be her only show this year, according to festival organizers. From Frank Ocean and Solange to A Tribe Called Quest and Erykah Badu, hip-hop fans are sure to be pleased with the lineup.
It doesn’t end there, according to FYF Fest’s official Twitter page — Nine Inch Nails will play their first Los Angeles show in three years at the festival.
Some attendees will be surprised, and very excited, to hear that the festival is also bringing back their stand-up comedy. The hilarious Hannibal Buress will be supplying laughs from the comedy stage, which has been M.I.A. from the festival since 2013.
But that’s not all. They’re also adding a sixth stage this year called “Outer Space.” Not much is known about this stage yet, so festivalgoers will be in for quite the surprise. But bring your dancing shoes because the website teases that there will be “so much dancing” and “over 15 artists performing extended sets” at the new stage.
The three-day festival has already been creating buzz on social media with hip-hop fans anticipating the event.
FYF Fest runs from Friday, July 21 through Sunday, July 23. Check out the full lineup below and don’t miss out on summer’s biggest festival — get your tickets here.
