Could LCD Soundsystem headline FYF Fest, too?

If you couldn't grab Coachella tickets and hate to think of missing out on 60,000 people singing along to "All My Friends" during LCD Soundsystem's headlining set, you may have another shot at this year's FYF Fest.

At least, that's the rumor according to Consequence of Sound, who attribute the abrupt LCD Soundsystem reunion to "a lucrative, multi-million dollar offer from AEG Live." The live entertainment company, which owns Coachella promoter Goldenvoice, supposedly sweetened the offer with headlining slots at its on-hold Panorama Festival in New York and LA's own FYF Fest.

FYF's increasingly eclectic lineups are no stranger to Coachella repeats—because, quite honestly, who hasn't played Coachella recently—which makes sense given that Goldenvoice has been partnering with the LA fest since 2011.

We'll take this one with a grain of salt for now, but don't be surprised if frontman James Murphy rolls into town come August.
