In other music news, a surprisingly strong lineup for Fuck Yeah Fest 2013 was revealed today and we are very excited by the collection of artists set to play this year. On August 24th and 25th, FYF Fest will take over L.A. State Historic Park for a full weekend of live music as the sun beats down mercilessly on Downtown L.A. with the Yeah Yeahs Yeah headlining Saturday, and shoegaze heroes My Bloody Valentine as Sunday's main event. Loads of other fantastic artists like Devendra Banhart, Solange, TV on the Radio, Toro y Moi, MGMT and Beach House are taking the FYF Fest stage, keep reading to see them all on the complete lineup.

If each festival has its own identity, what, exactly, is FYF Fest? Is it a fashionable trust-fund hipster like Coachella? A shitkickin' good old boy like Stagecoach? An impressively drugged-out nudist like Burning Man? Well, as we learned last weekend, the FYF Fest is more like that friend of yours who got a six-figure financial job but still blacks out and pukes on himself on the weekends. In other words, it's bigger and fancier than ever, but the DIY attitude it was founded on is still alive and well. More»
We know that L.A. starts to feel like a ghost town on a holiday weekend, but with a Goldenvoice-revamped 2-day FYF Fest kicking off on Saturday, the smartest kids might be the ones staying in town for Labor Day. And even if you're staying home to save dough, you deserve to see M83, Sleigh Bells, Dinosaur Jr. and the like just as much as anyone. Luckily for you, we've teamed up with our friends at Chilli Beans Sunglasses and Goldenvoice to give you a shot to win tickets, including a VIP prize package including free Chilli Beans sunglasses! Read on to find out how to enter today. More»
We've long been fans of the FYF Fest, dating back to the days when the alternative and indie rock themed festival had less corporate sponsorship to worry about and cheerfully printed the "F**k Yeah!" now implied in the name on their official tickets and banners. While we're general supporters of open profanity, the perfectly acceptable tradeoff in recent years has been the rapid expansion and improvement of the lineup, which last year featured beloved acts like Guided By Voices. But FYF organizers (which include co-sponsors like Goldenvoice) are clearly not yet satisfied, and they've proven it with an M83-led 2012 lineup, just announced this morning, that we feel safe saying is the best yet. All the details after the jump! More»
