The big event in town this weekend is FYF Fest, but if you didn’t get tickets you can still watch Saturday and Sunday night performances for free.

Twitter is streaming the show, bringing into the palm of your hand performances by Iggy Pop, Solange, MGMT, Run The Jewels and Nine Inch Nails.

The fest kicks off Friday night and gets an afternoon start at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday in Exposition Park.

The top act on Sunday is Iggy Pop, fresh off the accolades for his work on the film “American Valhalla,” which bowed two weeks ago to rave reviews.

Bjork, Missy Elliott and NIN

Bjork and Missy Elliott are headliners on Friday, Jonathan Richman, MGMT, Frank Ocean and A Tribe Called Quest play on Saturday. Also on Sunday are headliner Nine Inch Nails, Solange and Ty Segall. On Friday, Russell Alexander opens at 5 p.m.

In addition to the live acts, the feed will also include animations, interaction with the crowd and interviews.

It’s hard to believe the fest has been around for 14 years. It has grown from a small gathering to a festival worthy of its top drawer talent.  Not sure what is the story with press credentials as Goldenvoice turns down many a request on this event.  As of Thursday night, tickets were still available for Friday and Sunday performances.
