FYF Fest flyer

The lineup for the 8th annual FYF Fest has just been announced; punk veterans the Descendents, recently-reunited noise-rock duo Death From Above 1979, and lo-fi legends Guided by Voices will be headlining. In an attempt to avoid the problematic overcrowding of last year's festivities, the event has moved to a new location in downtown LA and teamed with Goldenvoice (the kind people responsible for Coachella and All Points West, among others).

This one-day festival manages to cram a lot of bands into a single Saturday—Saturday, September 3rd, to be precise—including Broken Social Scene, Cold War Kids, No Age, Girls, Simian Mobile Disco, Smith Westerns, and Ty Segal. There will also be stand up comedy (unless that's just a really bad band name and I'm misunderstanding). It looks like a great time and promises to have lots of water bottles. Tickets will be on sale starting this Friday, June 17, via fyffest.com. You can check out the poster for complete lineup, or go to the FYF Fest website for more information.
