Fuck Yeah! The Fuck Yeah Fest is Coming!
The Fuck Yeah Fest, which happens every August in Echo Park, has expanded to a nationwide tour featuring revolving acts. The Los Angeles date is a 2-day affair taking place at on Sat and Sunday August 30th and 31st at 3 echo park locations: The Echoplex, The Echo and The Jensen REc Center.

The fest is once again curated by Sean Carlson and Keith Morris. This year’s line up features No Age, Negative Appraoch, Polvo, Matt & Kim, Dan dEacon, Glass Candy, Two Gallanet, Mika Miko, Crystal Antlers, Trans Am, Abe Vigoda and many, many more.

Also taking place this year to coincide with the fest will be a scavenger hunt, which will take place on sunday at 2pm and end at 7pm. There will be a long list of items you will need to try and find throughout the city; forty items on the list are material goods that the Union Rescue Mission is in need of. The Union Rescue Mission houses hundreds of houseless families in downtown Los Angeles and is one of the few missions that works with the homeless to get them back on their feet.

For more information on the fest, including how to purchase tickets, more info on the scavenger hunt, and more additions to the line up and dates for the tour click here .

Also taking place tonight in Los Angeles will be a Fuck Yeah Fest Benefit show at the 6th Street Warehouse. Headlining the show will be Crystal Antlers and Brother Reade along with a secret special guest. The money raised will go towards keeping events like this going for the future (the financial backer pulled out a few days ago, leaving the promoter in serious debt). So try and make it out, if you’ve gone in past years you know how fun this is.
