FYF Fest 2012: Lightning Bolt, M83, James Blake, Liars, John Maus, and many more determined by me

FYF Fest (or, as I like to call it, the Festival of a Thousand Inhalants — trademark pending) has just announced the lineup for its 2012 edition. And by “just,” I mean on June 18, but I figure the stoner demographic is working on a delayed schedule anyway. And by “working,” I mean getting high and eating In-N-Out Burger.

This year, the festival expands to two days and will take place Labor Day weekend (September 1 and 2) at Los Angeles State Historic Park. Artists of note, whose noteworthiness is decided entirely by me, include: M83, Lightning Bolt, James Blake, Refused, Dinosaur Jr., Liars, Beirut, Aesop Rock, Black Dice, The Field, Wild Nothing, John Maus, Sleigh Bells, and Paul Banks of Interpol fame. Check out the full lineup here, and go here for ticket information. Weekend passes are currently running for $89 online and, until closing Friday, $77 at any of the designated outlets.

At the moment, it doesn’t seem like they’re offering tickets for individual days, so if you find yourself on Sunday totally preoccupied with your pre-celebration of the American worker, it looks like you’re out of luck. Purchase your weekend pass, and take comfort in the fact that your lungs will only be half as lined as they could be with dust. WOO! M83! WOOOOO, YES! *cough* *hack*
