Jennifer Yacoubian, booker for FYF and Goldenvoice, said diversity was a key component of this year’s music selection. “In the past 15 years, this festival has grown immensely with a strong team of women and men behind it to bring fans the best weekend of summer,” she wrote. “And with incredible artists like Janet Jackson and Florence + The Machine topping this year’s bill, we are so psyched to have two badass women leading the roster as we head into FYF Fest 2018.”
FYF will support the L.A. community at the event, incorporating art installations from local artists and food options from local restaurants. For the fourth consecutive year, FYF is partnering with Plus 1 to donate one dollar from each ticket sale to charitable organizations. Additional details of the initiative will be announced soon.
