Los Angeles, California -- FYF Fest has released the set times for this weekend's August 23-24 festival, which you can view below or on the festival's newly-released app, available for iPhone and Android.
Gates open at 2pm on both days of the festival, so you really don't have an excuse to show up late - except, maybe, LA traffic. But be sure to get to FYF early, because the must-sees start playing as early as 2:30pm, like Mariachi El Bronx on Saturday afternoon. You can stick around on The Lawn for experimental rockers Man Man, but you might want to dip early to catch cali-punks Joyce Manor open the Main Stage at 4:05pm. Julian Casablancas + The Voidz play at 7:50pm, but be sure to catch at least part of Against Me!'s 8:20-9:10pm set for one last dose of angry folk-punk before closing out your night with your choice of Phoenix, Grimes, Ty Segall, or DJ Harvey.
Once you take a deep breath, you can start thinking about Sunday's schedule. Chicago's Twin Peaks kick off the day with a 2:30pm set at The Trees, and if you're anything like this author, that's where you'd spend most of your day - watching sets by Joanna Gruesome (3:15pm), Balance & Composure (4:05pm), and La Dispute (4:55pm). But at 5:05pm, you might run into a problem when you realize Mac DeMarco is on at the Main Stage. Then, you can stray from the emo and shoegaze with a set by Blood Orange at 7:40pm, and Earl Sweatshirt at 8:30pm. Closing out the night and the festival is Deafheaven at 11pm, and if you haven't lost your hearing (or gotten sufficiently beaten up in a mosh pit) by then, don't worry, because catching the NorCal black metal outfit will take care of that for you.
But you don't have to commit this all to memory. Download the app to view festival maps, FAQ, and most importantly, the schedule in full. You can create a personalized schedule on the app, or view it in full below:
