Tickets are still available for purchase. They will be $20 in advance and $24 dollars at the door. We highly recommend purchasing them in advance Here is the link

A very small amount of VIP passes still available for purchase. The VIP pass includes onsite VIP parking, access to a full cash bar, and prime hang out area in between the main stage and the side stage. Even better you enter through the VIP parking area meaning you won’t have to wait in line at the front gate. FYF Fest is an all ages event but you must be 21+ to purchase VIP passes.

Tickets are free for those under the age of 12 accompanied by an adult.


We have one slot open at the FYF Fest and we are going to give it to the band that brings us the most cans of food. Our food drive will run from 8:00am – 11:59pm on Thursday, September 3rd. All cans will be donated to the LA Food Bank.

Our office is located at
3020 Sunset Blvd.
LA, CA 90026

The band / team with the most cans of canned goods (all vegetables/ no meat!) will win the midday slot on the FYF Fest. For real!

We don’t care what band your band sounds like or if you are even in a band. Hell, if you want to do tell jokes, play guitar hero, tap dance or meditate on stage we are all for it. We are just trying to reach our goal, which is to donate 5,000 cans of food to the LA Food Bank!

Five runner ups will receive a pack of 4 VIP tickets and high fives.

Hit us up at if you have any questions.
