FYF Fest 2017 (short for “F*ck Yeah Fest Fest”) had a successful run last weekend. The three-day annual music festival held Los Angeles Sports Arena & Exposition Park saw headlining performances by Frank Ocean, Missy Elliot, Björk and Nine Inch Nails as well as performances from the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Solange, Flying Lotus, Anderson .Paak, Majid Jordan and more.
Perhaps the biggest highlight of the festival was that it was Frank Ocean’s first performance in the US since 2014. The Blonde mastermind performed an hour-long set that including his most popular songs like “Nikes,” “Thinkin Bout You,” “Chanel” and more. In addition, the singer also brought out Brad Pitt during “Close to You/Never Can Say Goodbye,” and even displayed a sing-along Hello Kitty head ricocheting over projected lyrics for “Nikes.” A fan named Brian Kinnes stitched together a 73-minute long video of Frank Ocean fan footage found on social media. Watch the video below and have a look at photos of the FYF performances — featuring Frank, Thundercat, King Krule, Majid Jordan, Anderson .Paak, Mac DeMarco, Mura Masa, Noname and more — in the gallery above.
