FYF Fest (short for "Fuck Yeah Fest Fest")[1] is an annual three-day music festival held at the Los Angeles Sports Arena & Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California. It was founded by Sean Carlson in 2004[2] and is produced by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG live. The event showcases many genres of music, including rock, indie, electronic, as well as art installations and sculptures. The festival also has its own night market where people can buy food while watching the concerts. Throughout the whole park, four stages host live music. There is the Main Stage, the Lawn, the Arena, and the newest installment of the Woods.

Although FYF's popularity is not as big as Coachella or EDC, the festival showcases popular and established music artists. Notable artists include: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, Interpol, Phoenix, Kanye West, Morissey, Flume, and D'Angelo.
