The 2018 FYF Fest has been cancelled. The event was originally set to take place at the Exposition Park in Los Angeles, CA on July 21-22. There wasn’t too much for rock/metal fans at the festival, but Glassjaw and Youth Code were both scheduled to perform alongside other artists like Janet Jackson, Florence + The Machine, My Bloody Valentine, Future, St. Vincent, etc. The organizers commented:
“After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel FYF Fest 2018.
Our team of many women and men have worked tirelessly on this event for many years but felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community this year.
We will be announcing some special local shows soon, featuring some of the amazing artists from the 2018 line up.
Ticket purchasers will automatically receive full refunds, including all service charges, beginning this Monday, May 7th, 2018. There is no action necessary on your end to receive a refund. You will receive an email notification from Festival Ticketing once your order is cancelled and refunded. Please allow 5 to 7 business days for the funds to appear in your bank account.”
Billboard say low ticket sales affected the decision.
