Peter, Bjorn and John, Ty Segall & The Muggers, DIIV, Chelsea Wolfe, Wild Nothing, The Black Lips, Young Thug, and Sheer Mag will also be making appearances, as well as many other artists. The festival has done a fantastic job covering a variety of genres, with acts like Todd Terje & The Olsens ready to surprise the EDM crowd and the aforementioned Long Beach rapper, Vince Staples, rearing to pump up his home crowd.
FYF Fest was first held in 2004 at The Echo, and only featured 14 smaller indie acts. The festival has grown significantly in recent years, moving to Los Angeles State Historic Park in 2009. In 2014, the concert moved to Los Angeles' Exposition Park. Past headliners have included Kanye West, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, and Interpol.For more on this summer's upcoming festivals, check out:
