    Default Fun Fun Fun Fest 2016

    I'm assuming ATDI are playing this since there are no Texas dates on their tour.

    Really hope AIR is there as well.

    Anyone else seem likely at this point?

    I feel like ATDI would be a great Black or Orange Stage headliner. Since Refused completely skipped Texas I could see them coming back as they haven't played the festival since 2012. If Sigur Rós announces a US tour I could see them headlining the Orange Stage as well.

    Is this fest big enough to pull Underworld? I have no reason to believe they'd play, but I've always thought they would be absolutely perfect for the blue stage, and this seems like it would be as good of a year as any.

    Plus - when's the last time these guys even played a Texas show?

    I could see it if they were in the country around the same time. Who knows though.

    I think the Chemical Brothers makes more sense (and would draw vastly more people) since they're playing a bunch of fests this year.

    Man, I would actually prefer the Chemical Brothers. They're one of those acts that could pull me to a fest by themselves, considering how rarely they play in the US

    I'm going to be bummed if AIR's not there.

    Geoff said he had info on them doing more shows but he hasn't responded since then.

    I hope there's a good amount of Psycho Las Vegas crossover.

    I know Electric Wizard is supposed to be a "festival exclusive" but that's what FFF said about Venom last year.

    I don't think that version of Venom has had any U.S. shows scheduled since FFF. Venom Inc. is a different lineup.

    You're probably right. A lot of those shows list both, though.

    Also, I wonder if Transmission poached any of Levitation's acts that didn't do makeup shows?

    He was joking. Slayer played the festival like 3 years in a row but I think Snoop/MIA have only played once or twice.
