Jennifer Yacoubian, bookmaker for FYF and Goldenvoice, said diversity was a key element of this year's music selection. "Over the past 15 years, this festival has grown enormously, with a strong team of men and women to offer fans the best summer weekend," she wrote. "And with incredible artists like Janet Jackson and Florence + The Machine outperforming this year's bill, we are so thrilled that two hard-hitting women are leading the list at the 2018 FYF Fest."
