FYF-2012

This past labor day weekend I spent in downtown Los Angeles attending Fuck Yeah Fest. This festival has been going on for the past few years and brings an outstanding array of musical acts and fans together. FYF mixes old favorites like Refused, Dinosaur Jr., and Converge with the top current bands like The Growlers, Sleigh Bells, and Beirut. I haven’t been to a music festival in a while so the combination of a solid line-up and need for a change of pace made for an easy decision.

This festival couldn’t be in a better location.

Ran into Morgnar right away. Click the photo to check out his site!

Hung out with Ryan and Andrew for a while on the first day.

Whoever did the branding for the event has been paying attention.

The Hundreds set up a carnival at FYF this year complete with games and limited edition The Hundreds product for prizes. It’s great to see an event sponsor go the extra mile like this.
