Boy, those folks at Fun Fun Fun Fest know how to put on a music festival. Not only do they put together simply stellar lineups of the best music and comedy around, but they respond to dropouts in the best way possible.
But just because one former band won’t be joining the festivities at Austin’s Auditorium Shores this November 7th-9th, doesn’t mean there aren’t still tons of eye-popping acts on the bill. Take for example the headliners: Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse, Nas, Judas Priest, and Death From Above 1979. Popped eyes, amiright? Well, get ready for the jaw drop, because the undercard includes King Diamond, Girl Talk, Flying Lotus, Sky Ferreira, Alt-J, The New Pornographers, The Blood Brothers, Run the Jewels, Failure, Guided By Voices, Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., Sun Kil Moon, First Aid Kit, Atmosphere, Foxygen, Black Lips, and Ginuwine. Yeah, Ginuwine.
There are even toe-curling aftershow exclusives (known as Nites) featuring acts like MSTRKRFT, Meat Puppets, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Octopus Project, Negative Approach, MC Chris, Power Trip, Into It. Over It., and O’Death. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget the belly-busting comedy stage that will see Fred Armisen, the cast of HBO’s Silicon Valley, John Waters, Neil Hamburger, Jon Daly, and — this is a real group, folks — the Air Sex Championships.
We’ll give you a second to pick up all those body parts you just dropped in awe. All set? Now, we’ll give you a chance to get in on all the action. We’re giving away one pair of GA tickets as well as one pair of Ultimate Smooth Passes. What’s an Ultimate Smooth Pass you ask? It’s the best thing ever, is all. The USP comes with access to the USP zone bars featuring craft beers and specialty cocktails, the private USP Biergarten, large viewing areas at the front of all stages, air-conditioned executive restrooms, “premium” and “unique” local food options, cell charging stations, a special entrance to the festival, priority access to all Nites evens (dependent on venue capacity), baggage concierge services, free water, activities, and a limited edition Fun Fun Fun Fest 7-inch vinyl. But hey, GA still gets you in to the music, too!
