They've already let us "Guess the Fest." They've also given us the full lineup. Now the folks at Fun Fun Fun Fest have gone a step further and laid out the day-by-day schedule, which will be spread out over three days (and three stages) this fall from Friday, November 7 to Sunday, November 9. That means thrifty concertgoers who are looking to pick out the best individual days to attend can start planning their Austin trek in earnest. Oh and conveniently enough, single-day passes went on sale as well this morning.
Headlining Fun Fun Fun this year will, of course, be British metal legends Judas Priest. It's a more than solid lineup behind them too, including Neutral Milk Hotel, Death Cab for Cutie, Nas and Death from Above 1979, who just announced plans to release a new album later this year. (All that now remains is the comedy lineup, which isn't due until next month.)
Looking at the individual day lineups, it could be hard to choose which is best. Friday includes Judas Priest and Death from Above, Saturday has Death Cab and Nas, and Sunday has Yo La Tengo and Death Grips. Day passes run $85, while the already released three-day passes are $195. Note to self: if you're considering going for two days, you might as well get a better deal and do the full three. But then that's just us.
