Jennifer Yacoubian, event booker for FYF, said diversity was obviously 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 Los Angeles community, incorporating art from local artists as well as food options from nearby restaurants. For the fourth successive year, FYF is joining up with Plus 1 to contribute one dollar from every ticket sale to charities. Additional details of the event will be announced soon.
