It was founded by Sean Carlson in 2004 and is now solely produced by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event showcased many genres of music, including rock, pop, indie, electronic and hip hop as well as art installations and sculptures.

The first Fuck Yeah Fest was held in 2004 at the Echo, a club in Echo Park, Los Angeles, California.
