  • FYF Fest will return to the LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park the weekend of August 22nd. The traditionally indie rock-centric festival has made moves towards the dance scene in the past few years, facilitated by last year's switch to Exposition Park. In the 2014 edition, the Sports Arena contained within was transformed into a massive disco with sets from Todd Terje, DJ Harvey and Daniel Avery, among others. This seems to be the plan this year, with a grip of DJs and dance acts populating the bill. RA DJ Poll topper Dixon brings some star power to the lineup, and he's joined by a fleet of UK artists including Ben UFO, Evian Christ, Horse Meat Disco, Jon Hopkins and Joy Orbison. Simian Mobile Disco is technically part of the Anglo crowd as well, though they've been spending plenty of time in LA as of late. Nicolas Jaar returns to the park after playing with his now-defunct band Darkstar last year, and local legend DJ Harvey will make an encore appearance as well. DJ Dodger Stadium and Shlohmo round out the LA-based electronic contingent. You can read RA's review of last year's festival here. Check out the full lineup on the event listing.
