Staying true to the original precedent of open-format, open-genre ideals, CYP2 has already featured many breakthrough performances from rising and noteworthy artists such as Yelawolf, Blonde Redhead, Andrew W.K., Wavves, Naked & Famous, Drop The Lime, and Das Racist to name a few. Additionally, CYP2 has entered the touring realm, now bringing the compete Check Yo experience to cities around the country with their kickoff tour featuring Spank Rock, Big Freedia, Pictureplane, the Death Set, and Franki Chan.
Aside from the show itself, CYP2 has been pushing the boundaries of what it means to throw an event in this day and age.
