Fun Fun Fun Fest (FFFun) is slowly creeping on us. The annual fall festival is one of the most creative festivals with four stages including three with diverse genres of music and a comedy stage. It is often referred to by locals on Red River as the “festival for real music fans,” as opposed to more mainstream festivals for lawn chair or frat daddy audiences. This year will be its 8th year of existence and will take place on Nov. 8-10 at Auditorium Shores.
Put on by the folks at Transmission Events, the festival is also known for their outside the box ticket giveaways for FFFun such as a hipster-style olympics on Lady Bird Lake, giant taco cannons that shoot actual tacos that may contain tickets and of course the “Guess The Fest” (GTF) contest.
Today Transmission Events announced that GTF is back with a little makeover, complete with updated prizes and some sweet access for the winners. Here is how it works:
* Go to GuessTheFest.com
* Login using your Facebook account
* You get 10 guesses to see if you know who’s performing at this year’s FFFun.
* The person who gets the most answers correct is the winner. Simple right?
There are pretty sweet hook-ups for the 2nd and 3rd place prize winners as well. The contest is open to all, even those outside of Austin as indicated by the “Fly-In” prize package that includes plane tickets. Start looking for the best up-and-coming music acts in hip-hop, metal, punk, indie and all of their sub-genres. Don’t forget to think of the big or obscure reunion acts the fest organizers always seem to pull from out of nowhere.
Oh yeah, and don’t forget that FUN 2 Discount is June 20. The FUN 2 discount is the last opportunity to get tickets to Fun Fun Fun at a discounted price. Be sure to follow FFFun on Twitter and Facebook to stay on top of the latest announcements.
