FYF: Run The Jewels, A Rogues Gallery

RUN THE JEWELS
FYF
EXHIBITION PARK, LA
22 AUGUST, 2015
At last year's FYF, the infamous duo Run The Jewels, (Killer Mike and El-P), tore up the Trees Stage in what turned out to be one of the festival's most memorable sets. For their troubles, they were invited back, and given prime Main Stage real estate, and they did not disappoint. Cherry picking their two LP's, they also made room for guest appearances from Rage Against The Machine's Zack De La Rocha, Blink 182's Travis Barker, and the inimitable Gangsta Boo. It's been a long journey to this post, since a tragic laptop crash wiped out all my photos of last year's incendiary turn, and this year we fought through smoke machines, lights, and flying bodies to put it right in the best possible way.

FYF: Saturday Gallery

FYF
EXHIBITION PARK, LA

This year's FYF returned to Exhibition Park in LA. Here's a visual representation of the day's wanderings. I did words for The Owl Mag for Saturday and Sunday. Due to an abundance of photos, Run The Jewels will have their own separate post in between days.
