    Also, Ultimate Smooth Pass upgrades are avaliable now. Looks like they refund the old ticket on your account and you pay for the USP pass.

    That makes buying the super early bird passes pointless. Oh well, guess i won't do USP.

    Big yay for Deltron 3030 though!!!

    So does everyone understand USP the way that I do? $150ish more for some comfort, but no included beer or food? Also, I see that there's Wed. "Nites" show or shows? The opening show last year was damn close to my favorite thing. Another hotel night/food/etc.? Shit.

    I had no idea that Kid Koala and Dan the Automator were in 3030. I was told to expect an orchestra as well. SO AWESOME.

    EDIT* I mean, I knew they worked together and were friends and what not. Didn't know they actually performed together.

    I bought early bird so for me it's an extra $200. But yeah that's how I understand it. My guess is they may announce some big Nites shows to get people to spring for it for that reason (you get priority entrance for Nites concerts). Which could work for me if I love a lot of the 'nites' shows. The other factor that could sway me is if they improve the viewing platforms by a lot - but I'd want to see a new map before deciding that and I'm guessing that won't be available until the fest starts.

    From what people wrote about PIP in previous years I'm dubious of all the comfort claims and how they're going to match up to reality.

    I booked a Tuesday flight to hangout in Austin so the fact that there is going to be Nites concerts now starting Wednesday is a happy surprise for me.

    Looking at the current lineup I'm happy with my choice to commit to this fest blind.

    I hope they expand the yellow stage, and with Tenacious D as the comedy headliner, I don't really think they have a choice. It was spilling out the sides and the back every single time I walked by it.

    The park itself appeared to be pretty tiny when I drove past it the other day. I didn't get a great look at it, though.

    I guess Tenacious D would draw more than Titus Andronicus, right? Titus PACKED that tent last year, for that matter Doug Benson did, too. Priority entry to Nites wouldn't have made any difference last year, as far as I could tell. I can't imagine the viewing platforms will improve that much, they were pretty darn far away, too. USP will be a hard sell for me with no food\beer, no swag bag (Stanley water bottle was sweet, fanny pack was quality, but, you know, it was a fanny pack) and last year's PIP experience.

    I wonder if some guest performers will show up for Deltron 3030 set since their all-star guest packed sophmore album is released the month before fff fest.If you didnt read before but Mike Patton showed up for "City Rises from Ashes" at their recent SF show.

    Deltron 3030 is definitely Dan The Automator's project as much as it is Del's. Kid Koala was a big part of the first album too, but it was really a Dan the Automator & Del the Funky Homosapien project.

    Man, all of this talk about Deerhunter's FYF performance is getting me rather excited for their set. Fingers crossed for an aftershow announcement. I really want to see them in a non-festival setting.

    They've sort of amended that since -

    Fun Fun Fun Fest - Student discounts and #nites will be on 9/12, day schedules and single day passes are usually a month later because they are still changing. Will keep you posted Derek.
    2 hours ago
    I realize this sort of directly contradicts what they wrote yesterday. Though I was most excited about the schedule, I'm also interested to see what concert is scheduled for the Wednesday before which I'll find out with the Nites announcement.
