In 2004, 18yr old Sean Carlson started FYF Fest.
As the years went on, with a small group of friends behind the wheel, the festival grew. Attendance increased and so did the size of the bands. With a need for more space the festival was moved from Echo Park to the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown. In 2011, Goldenvoice joined as a producer of the event.
Now in its 13th year, the FYF Fest will once again held at its new home, The LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park, and will be taking place on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th.
