FYF Fest has announced its 2016 lineup, with Kendrick Lamar and Tame Impala atop Saturday's bill and LCD Soundsystem—as rumored—and Grace Jones headlining on Sunday. The rest of the lineup includes the likes of Air, Beach House, Grimes, Hot Chip, Father John Misty, Explosions in the Sky, Anohni, Saves the Day and more.

The fest will once again return to Exposition Park—presumably sans the shuttered LA Sports Arena—on August 27 and 28. Weekend passes will cost $199, with single day tickets available for $129 and VIP passes for $339; all tickets go on sale Friday, April 1 at noon.

As festivals with indistinguishable lineups become the norm, FYF Fest is making a case for itself as a stand-out musical destination, particularly with only-at-FYF inclusions like style icon Grace Jones, electro-pop duo Air—with their first US appearance in five years—and emo band Saves the Day, who will be performing their beloved 2001 album Stay What You Are in full.

While the lineup certainly has its Coachella crossovers, we're undeniably thrilled about this year's installment of the increasingly enjoyable Downtown fest. See the full lineup below, and make sure to check out our complete coverage of FYF Fest.
