For the first time since its 2006 inception, this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest will be expanded to three days, taking place Nov. 5-7 at Waterloo Park in Austin, Texas.
Big names on the list include MGMT, Devo, Bad Religion, Mastodon, The Hold Steady, GWAR and Dirty Projectors. In an unexpected twist, parody musician “Weird” Al Yankovic will open up all three days of the festival.
Tickets go on sale today. At a press conference in Austin, Transmission Entertainment founder Graham Williams confirmed that there would be limited-run student discount tickets, though no date has been given.
One of the best parts of Fun Fun is the epic after-parties at local venues, and that should be no different this year. Williams said after-party announcements will begin trickling out mid-September.
Williams said the lineup you see is pretty much final, though there are a couple of holes that need to be filled. Other than a few minor additions, what you see below is what you’ll get. Although, he noted, that Airpocalypse of America’s Got Talent fame was also just booked today.
