This year, FYF Fest packs more of a sonic wallop than some of the bigger festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza. Whereas Coachella remains a virtual boys’ club, Friday alone at FYF is helmed by two radical and disparate women. An apparently revitalized Missy Elliott brags, “He watching my body like he watching Scandal” on her recent single “I’m Better,” whereas the ever-demonstrative Björk has risen from the ashes of romantic disappointment and reinvented herself yet again on her latest album, Vulnicura. The feminine mystique continues on Saturday with hip-hop soothsayer Erykah Badu, preceding the soulful ruminations of Frank Ocean. Sunday culminates with a triumvirate of testosterone-fueled aggression, from the brutal rap intensity of Run the Jewels and the stark industrial clangor of Nine Inch Nails to the bare-chested savagery of the seemingly indestructible Iggy Pop. Also Saturday-Sunday, July 22-23.

With Missy Elliott, Björk, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, Angel Olsen, Beach Fossils, Flying Lotus, Badbadnotgood, Thee Oh Sees, Slowdive, Survive, Royal Headache, Kirk Knight, Majid Jordan, Kelly Lee Owens, Paranoid London, Horse Meat Disco, Hundred Waters, DJ John Talabot, Helena Hauff.
