The lineup for the 2010 FYF Fest has been unveiled/leaked:

This festival takes place at Los Angeles' State Historic Park near downtown, which was going to be the site of the recently canceled HARD Festival (headlined by M.I.A. and N*E*R*D). Los Angeles authorities nixed that particular event supposedly due to the one death and 100+ injuries sustained during last month's Electric Daisy Carnival.

Cancelations or not, FYF 2010 boasts the best lineup for any Californian music festival this summer. Just going through the lineup: The Rapture, Panda Bear, !!!, Delorean, Best Coast, Wavves, Dead Man's Bones, Ted Leo, The Blow, Cults, Man Man, Abe Vigoda, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Washed Out, and Warpaint are absolute can't-miss bands. You won't spend a better $25 this summer.

Nice to see FYF book some artists that have seemed to be absent for a while, including The Rapture, Sleep, Man Man, and The Blow.

Keep your eyes peeled on For Young Moderns for some posts dedicated to several of these FYF artists. For starters, here's a video (recorded by For Young Moderns) of energetic Spaniards Delorean performing "Seasun" (from the excellent Subiza) at the Echoplex in Los Angeles back in April:
