2013's Fun Fun Fun Festival Boasts The Austin Event's Best Lineup To Date

Posted by Billyjam, October 7, 2013 03:15pm | Post a Comment

Now in its eight year the aptly named Fun Fun Fun Festival - Austin's annual Fall music/comedy/skate/food festival - will present its traditionally diverse and most satisfying lineup to date when it takes place in the Texas city over three days next month - November 8th, 9th , and 10th at the Auditorium Shores. That's when and where, on different stages catering to indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, punk, metal and comedy will present a refreshingly cool mix of well known and unknown (but all good) acts that will include RJD2, Melt BananaTelevision, Flag (members of Black Flag), Big Freedia, Patton Oswalt, The Walkmen, Daniel Johnson, Jurassic 5, The Descendents, MIA, Slayer, Ice-T, Death Grips, Serengeti, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Johnny Marr, Sparks, Action Bronson, Snoop Dogg, and Unlocking The Truth. The latter is the duo comprised of Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins: the young African American NYC metal loving pals who wowed audiences at the recent Afro Punk Festival in their home borough of Brooklyn last month. Below is an interview video with the passionate pair of young metal heads, along with a series of other music videos by a select few of the numerous amazing acts booked to play at Fun Fun Fun.  Usually festivals have some acts I really want to see and others that I could take or leave. But this festival personally appeals to my taste 100% with a lineup that I would like to see all of the acts perform. Hence am seriously considering how I can manage to take a trip to Austin next month to attend. Festival tickets are $79 per day or $179 for the three day weekend (or upgrade to $325 for the "ultimate smooth pass" which comes with some extras). Advance tix available to purchase here and more general Fun Fun Fun Festival info here or in the flyer above with all the amazing lineup included.
