Los Angeles, California -- If you weren't part of the anti-FYF Twitter campaign or Facebook rampage, we're assumed you've at least heard of the festival's logistical issues by now. Yes, many festivalgoers waited hours to enter the festival grounds on Saturday. Yes, fans of the Arena artists were barred once the stage reached capacity. Yes, vendors and supplies were in short supply. Yes, my pedometer did read 10 miles by the end of day one. But there was more to FYF Fest's 11th edition than that. 

Not only did festival organizers clean up their act as much as they could by Sunday, the music was, as always, top notch. It may have been the festival's furthest venture away from its punk roots, but with headliners like The Strokes, Phoenix, and Haim, no one seemed to mind. We ran around the grounds over the weekend to catch as many bands as we could and, in turn, turned our favorite moments into gif-form so you can relive the festival or check out what you missed. 

Scroll down for FYF Fest in 50 gifs, then head to our individual gif galleries of La Dispute, Against Me!, and Haim or check out our Facebook Album of artists, attendees, and atmosphere.
