Tuesday night the folks at Transmission Events, curators/producers of Fun Fun Fun Fest (FFFun Fest), announced yet another new round of performers for this year’s fest via their “Vannin” party held at 1100 East 5th. Sissy bounce fave Big Freedia, rapper Lupe Fiasco and M.I.A. were the big names on the vans that popped up on the big screen. See the rest of the announced performers below.
More musical acts will be announced in August and September. The comedy (yellow stage) and action sports roster will be unveiled Aug. 3 at the third annual FFFun Fest Aqua Olympics. Be ready for giant taco cannons as well.
The 8th annual FFFun Fest will take place Nov. 8-10 at Auditorium Shores. The fest will host indie rock, hip-hop, comedy, punk, metal and more while delivering big on new music discovery, throwback favorites and underground acts.
