The FYF lineup is finally here, and this year, we've been waiting for it. The folks at Fuck Yeah Fest continue to step it up compared to their humble beginnings at the Echo all those years ago: The 2014 headliners include The Strokes, Phoenix, Julian Casablancas, Haim and Interpol. Other swoonworthy artists on the bill are Future Islands, Tycho, Blood Orange, Chet Faker, Pink Mountaintops.... We, like last year, are super impressed and super excited.
The festival will take place at LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park (due to renovations at the fest's previous home, LA State Historic Park) over the weekend of August 23-24th. Weekend passes are $129 ($30 more than last year!) and go on sale—along with a limited number of single day tickets—on Thursday, May 22th at 12pm. If you'd rather snatch 'em up in person, head to Origami Vinyl or Amoeba Music. Either way, set your alarms and get ready—they're gonna go fast.
