FYF Fest: Missy Elliott, Björk, Frank Ocean, Nine Inch Nails to headline
Los Angeles’ FYF Fest just announced a loaded lineup for its 14th annual installment. Missy Elliott, Björk, Frank Ocean, and Nine Inch Nails will headline the festival, which is expanding from two to three days this year. Elliott’s set is her only scheduled 2017 concert.
This year’s edition of FYF Fest also sports a stacked undercard: A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Iggy Pop, Solange, Run the Jewels, Flying Lotus, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, MGMT, Nicolas Jaar, Slowdive, Angel Olsen, Little Dragon, Kehlani, Thundercat, Grandaddy, Ty Segall, Noname, Whitney, and Mitski will all perform.
Other highlights include Motor City Drum Ensemble’s first U.S. show since 2010, Blonde Redhead performing their 2000 classic A Melody of Certain Damaged Lessons, and the festival’s first comedy programming since 2013, headlined by Hannibal Buress.

Ocean’s return to FYF Fest is significant: In 2015, organizers tapped Kanye West to headline the festival on short notice after the Blonde musician canceled his appearance.
Last year’s FYF Fest included high-profile sets by LCD Soundsystem and Kendrick Lamar — plus a Lady Gaga cameo during Tame Impala’s performance.
FYF Fest is slated for July 21 to 23 at Los Angeles’ Exposition Park. Passes for the fest go on sale this Friday.
