Missy Elliott, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest and More Added to 2017 FYF Fest Lineup

FYF Fest
Tod Seelie for FYF Fest

FYF Fest just announced its full lineup for the 14th annual festivities today (March 21) and hip-hop fans are going to have a field day. Missy Elliott, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest and more have been added to the lineup of the Downtown Los Angeles festival.

FYF has expanded to three days for the first time this year, covering a broader musical spectrum than ever. Other rap acts making appearances at FYF this year include Run The Jewels, 6LACK, Anderson .Paak, BadBadNotGood, Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, Joey Purp, Kamaiyah, Kirk Knight, Majid Jordan, Nadia Rose, Noname, Princess Nokia and Thundercat. This eclectic lineup will definitely draw fans from all music backgrounds.

It’s dope that Frank Ocean will be making amends for ducking out of his headlining FYF Fest spot two years ago. Back in 2015, Kanye West replaced Ocean last minute when, according to a festival press release the R&B singer “decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance.”

After years of hiatus and seclusion, the singer dropped the stellar sophomore album Blonde and has been coming out with new singles ever since. Ocean collabed with Calvin Harris and Migos for the song “Slide” last month and “Chanel” featuring A$AP Rocky a couple weeks back. In addition to FYF Fest, Ocean is set to play headlining sets at this year’s Hangout Festival, Sasquatch Fest! and Way Home Music Festival.

As for FYF, it all goes down this July 21–23 at Exposition Park in Downtown Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 24th at Noon PST via FYF Fest’s official website.
