Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 Announces Full Lineup

Fun Fun Fun Fest announced today the daily schedule for the seventh annual festival with Single Day Tickets now on sale for the Fest to be held November 2 to 4 at Auditorium Shores in Austin.

Recently reunited legendary hip-hop outfit Run-D.M.C will headline opening night, along with performances from Santigold, seminal L.A. punk group X, Dillon Francis and Twin Sister. Saturday night will feature Girl Talk, Johnny Lydon’s PiL, Refused, A$AP Rocky, Diamond Rugs and more. Closing out the final day of the Fest are sets by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Turbonegro, Etienne De Crecy, and Black Moth Super Rainbow. Check out the complete schedule by day with performance times here.

Previously announced artists include Atlas Sound, Baroness, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Starfucker, Rakim, Lagwagon, The Head & The Heart, Danny Brown, David Cross, Bob Mould, Tomahawk and Against Me!. Additional acts might be announced later this month.

“This is easily our strongest and most diverse lineup to date. With artists like Run-D.M.C., Refused, PiL, Santigold, and David Cross all in the same weekend, we are really filling a niche and giving fans something special,” says James Moody, Principal at Fun Fun Fun Fest. “This year, we have applied this thinking to food, fashion, art, skate/ride, and Nites as well. It will be a whole new experience, while still feeling like the FFF that our fans know and love.”

Single Day Tickets for Friday through Sunday are now on sale for an all-in, no fees price of $75 at the ticket center on the website. Like every year, Fun Fun Fun Fest will release a limited number of Student Discount three day passes – for fans with verifiable active student IDs.
