FYF Fest 2016, August 27 - August 28, Exposition Park, Los Angeles

Sep 08, 2016

FYF Fest is in its 13th year, and like most preteens it's been going through some awkward growing pains. Transitioning from downtown's State Historic Park to the Coliseum in 2014 was no small feat and that year had it's fair share of hiccups (massive lines to enter the grounds, the indoor stage that quickly turned into a fire hazard, and the labyrinthine journey to get from one stage to the next, etc.).

The entrance lines are shorter and attendees were reportedly given free water by way of apology for the long wait on Saturday. The price of water has been cut from $3 to $2. And the balconies inside the Los Angeles Sports Arena have been opened up to accommodate those unable to access the indoor shows for lack of room. More

Los Angelenos are accustomed to traffic, but not the foot kind. All the bread lines in communist Russia can't compare to the queue clogging up the sidewalk perimeter of Exposition Park at the start of the 11th annual FYF Festival. (Keen observation by Real Estate bassist Alex Bleeker: "'FYF festival' is a little redundant isn't it, like 'ATM machine.'") More
