Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 Lineup: M.I.A., Slayer, Television and More
Fun Fun Fun Fest's lineup has just been announced, and it is Fucking Fantastic. You can see some of the big names above (and the full list below) but we'll run through some highlights anyway: Big names like Slayer and M.I.A., unassailable legends like Daniel Johnston and Flag, fascinating oddities like Death Grips and Melt-Banana. Note also the NPR approved locals True Widow. In short, go to Austin the second week of November this year and you will find an edifying music experience. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow. "Pound for pound, this is probably our most powerful line up in our 8-year history," said James Moody, co-owner of FFF in a press release.
This is most of the lineup -- yet to be announced are the comedy acts and a few musical stragglers. The "expanded comedy and action sports experience" details will be announced at this year's FFF Aqua Olympics on August 3.
