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 since they are selling very fast.

VIP Passes

A very small amount of VIP passes are 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, which means 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 tickets.


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

Does Your Band Want to Play the FYF Fest?

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 8:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, September 3. All cans will be donated to the LA Food Bank.

Our office is located at
3020 Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, California 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 all you want to do is 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 runners-up will receive a pack of four VIP tickets and high-fives. Hit us up at if you have any questions. Spread the word about this!
