Now in its sixth year, Los Angeles’ F Yeah Fest has evolved into yet another incarnation. Created in 2004 by 18-year-old Sean Carlson, the event has been everything from a multi-day affair to a traveling tour. For its ’09 edition, Carleson and co-curator Keith Morris (of Black Flag) have decided to make F Yeah Fest a one day extravaganza of up-and-comers and hidden gems, all amidst a backdrop of raising awareness for the possible closure of up to 100 California State Parks.
The Black Lips, Tim & Eric, Lightning Bolt, The Thermals, and Lucero will head F Yeah Presents Save Our State Parks, set to take place on September 5th at the Los Angeles Historic State Park. Also confirmed are Converge, No Age, Fucked Up, Glass Candy, Times New Viking, Wavves, Crystal Antlers, AA Bondy, and Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. The full lineup can be found over at the Festival Outlook.
Tickets for F Yeah Fest ’09 will go on sale beginning Tuesday, August 4th via Ticketweb.com and will cost you only $21 — one dollar from each ticket be donated to Homeboy Industries and Harvest of Hope. Those who volunteer will gain free access into the festival.
