Do It | Couturist’s Guide to FYF
To in-the-know Angelenos, FYF equates to the best weekend of summer. Here’s our guide to making sure you do it right.
Before FYF, we used to dread Labor Day weekend. Despite the Monday-off, we knew it meant summer was over or at the very least, winding down. Now that we have FYF on the horizon, Labor Day weekend can’t come soon enough. Here, we offer a simple checklist of sorts to help you enjoy this celebration of music, summertime, friends and our fair city of Angels as much as we do.
Follow @FYFFest on Twitter. This keeps you in the loop with real-time festival updates.
Check the lineup and the set times, then write out your dream schedule. There are four stages (named after streets in LA: Main St., Spring St., Hill St., and Broadway St.) so you’ll have to pick between bands that overlap or map it out so that you see the beginning of one set and run to catch the end of another.

Wear your fave pair of Juicy Jeans with an Essential Tee and lightweight cross body bag. You’re going to be on your feet and on the go all day. This is one of those times when it’s critical to mix fashion with function. Trust us and don’t even think of wearing heels (this includes wedges!) in a grassy park.
Plan your arrival. You don’t want to miss White Arrows, meaning you need to get there before it starts at 12pm. The festival is located in DTLA at Los Angeles Historic State Park at 1245 N. Spring Street. Take a cab (or the metro! The lines are extended for the fest and run until 2am) so you get dropped off and picked up right at the entrance.
Stay close by. If you don’t live in Hollywood or Downtown, we suggest you get a hotel at either The Standard or the The Roosevelt (use the code FYF when you book for a discount). The festival lets out around midnight but the after-parties go all night long. You’ll be partying Saturday to Sunday, back-to-back. The last thing we want you to worry about is getting home late at night and then getting back there early the next morning.
