We got FYF Fest Set Times here! Time to hunker down and figure out who you're seeing, what conflicts will eat away at you all week and what new acts to explore along the path. This lineup is stacked with every kind of music taste you can fathom so the conflicts definitely have a widened difference in style and they staggered the times a bit so you can catch a song or three from a lot of acts. It's festival tapas time! So who will you see?
Kaytranada vs. Goldroom
Winner: Goldroom (Perfect daytime vibes with a full live band to get the weekend going)
Frank Ocean vs. Jon Hopkins
Winner: Frank Ocean (New album on the horizon means one of the best shows of the weekend)
Nicolas Jaar vs. Belle & Sebastian vs. Death Grips
Winner: Nicolas Jaar (He crushed The Arena last year with Darkside and never disappoints)
Flume vs. Dixon
Winner: Both! (Start off with tech house mastery at Dixon and then midway head on over for one of the most ferocious sets and crowds of the weekend at Flume)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra vs. Neon Indian
Winner: UMO (These guys have one of the best albums of the year so catch them while they're on fire. Neon Indian is waking up from a slumber and you'll be able to catch a taste of them with the set time gap. Love their new track 'Slumlord'.
