FYF Fest organizers have pulled the plugged and cancelled the 2018 edition due to poor ticket sales. The festival was scheduled to take place July 21st and 22nd in Los Angeles. Headliners for the event were scheduled to be Florence + The Machine, Janet Jackson & Future.
The festival, produced by Goldenvoice, was also going to feature performances from St. Vincent, The xx, Breeders, My Bloody Valentine and more.
So we'll ask the question again ... are there too many festivals? Or was it that this lineup just wasn't strong enough? Or maybe some other factor?
All fans who purchased tickets will be refunded - here's the official statement & info directly from the fest:
"After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel FYF Fest 2018.
Our team of many women and men have worked tirelessly on this event for many years but felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community this year.
We will be announcing some special local shows soon, featuring some of the amazing artists from the 2018 line up.
