In its 14th year, FYF Fest is looking to outdo every one of their previous iterations. Now spanning three days from July 21-23, the festival held at Exposition Park has landed insane headliners Missy Elliott (her only scheduled show this year), Frank Ocean (his first scheduled US show supporting Blond/Endless – following his cancellation of the other fests he was set to play prior), and
Nine Inch Nails (their first show since 2014). Speaking of “landed,” FYF has also added a sixth stage called “Outer Space” which will feature all day DJing.

With just a couple weeks out until the fest begins, FYF has announced the official set times for each artist, and as usually the case, there are some notable crossovers that you’ll need to figure out and maneuver carefully.

Unfortunate as it is trying to see Majid Jordan at the same time as Flying Lotus’ new 3D experience, Friday isn’t as complex as Saturday, which has artists like Perfume Genius, Built To Spill, King Krule, and Arca fighting for a prime spot while A Tribe Called Quest makes their storied return. Be advised, too, that some of these artists are playing full shows at venues before or after the weekend’s event, so I would research that first before feeling major FOMO at the Main Stage.

Sunday has an incredible wealth of heat-seeking indie acts between the 3PM-8PM hours like Cherry Glazer, Whitney, Andy Shauf, Chicano Batman, Moses Sumney, Nadia Rose, and Mac DeMarco, and they’re all playing on different stages, so you’ll have to utilize your time wisely and either catch a glimpse of each of these acts or commit to a stage or two and see their full performances. Based on previous experience, it would also be advisable to try and make it to Solange, Run The Jewels, and Nine Inch Nails in one go, as each of their sets are sure to be memorable.

The 2017 lineup might be the beefiest lineup in the fest’s history, for Los Angeles, and certainly that of 2017’s other festivals around the country, so make sure you’re a part of it. You can still get Single-Day, 3-Day GA and 3-Day VIP Passes at www.fyffest.com, and be sure to download the 2017 app on iOS or Android devices, as you can use it to explore the line up, see the site map, check out merch and vendors, and find your friends at the festival.
