This year’s annual FYF Fest is expected to be a serious barnburner, with names like A Tribe Called Quest, Missy Elliott, Björk, and Nine Inch Nails all performing over the course of the three-day event. The whole thing kicks off on Friday, July 21 and runs through that weekend, but just today festival management released the full lineup of food options for the anticipated party, exclusively to Eater LA. Here’s what to expect:
Kogi and Locol will both be out in force, with chef Roy Choi likely on hand to lend some elbow grease to the trucks when they need it most.
Upstart Downtown stand Meatzilla will be supplying the Instagram fodder with their overclocked burgers with personal pizzas for buns. Dune expects to make the show too, doing Middle Eastern plates and wraps.
Fat Dragon will also be around, offering their take on modern Chinese takeout. Hanjip, a festival circuit staple, will focus on Korean staples like bibimbap and grilled meats. For breakfast heads The Yeastie Boys will be slinging bagels.
Sunny Blue will be crafting omusubi on site, while Pizzanista! offers slices and Tikifish handles the poke scene. The Halal Guys will be there too, slinging their usual halal cart-style chicken and rice, complete with the all-important spicy red sauce. Expect a line.
Awesome soul food purveyors My 2 Cents will also be on property, along with Phorage and vegan noodle option Ramen Hood. Keeping things similarly plant-based is Sage, while anyone looking for a bigger bite can opt for Delmy’s Pupusas or a hot dog from Sumo Dog.
Little Damage, Downtown’s moody purveyor of charcoal ice cream, will be handling the sweets side of things, along with Van Leeuwen.
This year’s 14th annual FYF Fest returns to Exposition Park from July 21 through July 23. Friday and Sunday general admission passes are still available, as are three-day general admission passes and three-day VIP passes. For the extra cost, VIP’ers get expedited entry and their own view to the stage, but more importantly get seated service (with waiters) for food and drink, plus craft beer, cocktails, oysters, and other stuff not available to the rest of the festival-goers.
