The Strokes and Phoenix will headline FYF Fest this year, to be held at the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park on August 23 and 24.

Sean Carlson, FYF's founder, announced the lineup on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic earlier this hour; for the first time in four years, the festival will no longer take place at the L.A. State Historic Park - which is set for renovations - in favor of an indoor/outdoor setup at Exposition Park. 

The full lineup is below.

FYF Fest this year felt like Coachella in L.A. -- the stages and everything else have gotten huge -- although the vibe was even more music-centric and laid back. Though in the heart of L.A., it wasn't about being "seen" as much as seeing one's favorite bands, even in the VIP areas.

The no-frills feel was reflected in the fashion choices too. Yeah, there was a lot of "eastsider" facial hair, '80s touches like neon and acid wash, and those flower head garlands. Mostly though, people were dressed for comfort and stomping about. We were proud about the relative lack of self-conscious irony out there. Here are the top 10 fashion moments of the festival.

This year's FYF Fest had plenty to offer in the way of dirt, sweat, guitars, EDM and gastropubbery. We were there to soak it all in. Here's our highlight reel.

We had a mostly, pretty great time at FYF Fest this year! Still, some of the bands kind of sucked it up -- and there were some logistical and fashion-oriented problems as well. So let's complain!

One year ago, alt-metal band Baroness was touring Europe behind the release of their criticially-acclaimed LP Yellow & Green. This ambitious double album was getting strong buzz for introducing progressive-rock elements into a sludge-metal blueprint. It was a big moment for the Georgia-based band.

The momentum came to a screeching halt on a rainy morning in August 2012, however, when Baroness' tour bus plunged 30 feet off a viaduct. The accident occurred in Bath, England and injured nine people. Three members of Baroness were in the hospital, for more than two weeks.

Better Than: Striking for a 40 hour work week.

After a series of intense showers and professional-assisted dust removal, we were back for day two of the purported Best Weekend of the Summer. Thankfully, Fuck Yeah Fest Fest delivered on its promise; after all, no one wants to suffer tinnitus, sausage legs and black lung for the Most OK Weekend of the Summer, do they? No. They don't.

Better than: Any cookout ever.

Braving choking dust clouds, oppressive sunlight and the inevitable game of PortaJohn Roulette ought to deliver an earthshattering prize. With another ambitious line up, and all modern conveniences covered this year (mist-troopers?), FYF Fest day one helped close down the summer in style.
