No Frank Ocean, after the increasingly MIA ‘Channel Orange’ pulled out of his scheduled slot – but the LA festival went on undeterred. Here’s the best shots from across the weekend…
Solange on seriously fiery form. Beyonce’s lil’ sister didn’t bring on her more famous sibling, but with this kind of killer performance, she didn’t need to.
The Drums – Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham – played tracks from last year’s ‘Encyclopedia’ album, their third LP, at Los Angeles’ ever-ace FYF Fest.
All the way from Melbourne, Australia, were King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. The seven piece band brought some serious psychedelic vibes to the sunny weekender.
