Entering its second decade, FYF Fest moves to a new indoor/outdoor location at the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park. With more stages and more food options, the not-so-little-festival-that-could rivals Coachella at the local level. The indie-centric FYF is where newly reformed shoegaze pioneers Slowdive are making their dreamy SoCal appearance. The Strokes headline the second day and appear as Julian Casablancas + The Voidz on the first day. Also appearing twice is Dan Snaith, better known in his electro-experimental guise Caribou on Saturday and his dark, after-hours guise Daphni on Sunday. Hipster favorite DJ Harvey's eclectic, disco-driven selections on day one will be contending with Jamie xx's futuristic set on day two. More Los Angeles than Paris, Phoenix take their usual festival-headlining spot with post-punkers Interpol and the dynamic Little Dragon on Saturday. On Sunday, homegrown folk-pop sisters Haim and the multidimensional Flying Lotus round out the sold-out weekend.
