Austin Texas – It’s the Live Music Capital of the World and we have a music festival for almost everything. This week marks the eighth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest coming to Austin. A much heavier sound than, say, ACL, this year’s headliners are Slayer, M.I.A, Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion), MGMT, and ICE- T. Patton Oswalt and Tenacious D? Yep, they’ll be there. It’s going to be that kind of a party.
The website boasts that it’s “recognized as one of the most relaxed, creative, and pioneering festivals in music today.” It continues, “Fun Fun Fun Fest is custom-booked for the most passionate, underground, and progressive musicians, comedians and fans around the world”.
As with any good festival, there will be a smorgasbord of food vendors present to keep your belly quenched including Austin’s Pizza, Blue Ribbon BBQ, Crepe Crazy, The Grilled Cheese Truck, and the Tamale House. A variety of retail vendors, a number of poster retailers and a few non-profits will be on-site at Auditorium Shores, as well.
Being relatively young, FFFF has continued to break records and grow exponentially. Last year’s turnout saw over 55,000 fans, and this year it is expected to grow even more. Early Bird and student tickets have already sold out, but you can still purchase a 3-Day Pass here.
For those who’d like to howl at the moon, Fun Fun Fun Fest will also be hosting bands at local venues like ACL Live, Beerland, Hotel Vegas, The Mohawk, Red 7, The Parish and more. Nites, as they are calling it, will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis at these venues (so get there early). The famous comedienne, Sarah Silverman, will be ready to make you laugh. The Misfits will be ready to eat your soul… or maybe just play some good old-fashioned punk. To see more, visit the FFFF site for yourself here.
November 8, 9, & 10th @ Auditorium Shores
