    Default Fun Fun Fun Fest 2014

    I guess now is as good a time as any to make this thread. Fantastic festival if you've never been. Smaller crowds, really diverse lineup with a really good balance of Metal, Rock, Punk, Electronic, Pop, etc. Under $200 for 3 days and you get free access to the Fun Fun Fun Nites which features a lot of the artists on the lineup playing in the local clubs around town (most of which are within walking distance to each other). If you're looking for a new festival to try this year I really can't recommend this one enough. There is most definitely a little bit of something for everyone here.

    First set of news for this years festival is coming tomorrow so stay tuned.

    April 1 - Yob
    April 6 - Swans
    April 7 - Liturgy
    April 10-12 - Coachella
    April 17 - Clark/Nosaj Thing
    April 23 - John Talabot
    April 27 - The Body & Full of Hell
    May 1 - Sleep
    May 8-10 - Austin Psych Fest
    May 13 - Noel Gallagher
    May 15-17 - Psycho California
    June 10 - Melvins
    June 20 - Blur
    June 24-28 - Glastonbury
    July 18 - Death Grips?

    I'm guessing the news is about relocating? Has their agreement with Auditorium Shores run out already?

    From what I heard, this is the year that there was gonna be problems due to the agreement C3 came with the grounds. I wouldn't be surprised the festival gets moved or a new date is made.

    Either way, REALLY hope they finally nab The Replacements this year.

    C3 donated a bunch of money to completely renovate the park with new grass and the park is going to be tied up all year. I think it'll be back at Auditorium Shores in 2015.

    I also cannot recommend this festival enough. Laid back and very well run. Kinda like FYF only there's much more to the fest besides music.

    Excited to see the line-up. Been wanting to go to this for years now, 2014 might have to be the one.

    I'm trying to figure out where they'll relocate to. Zilker could work I guess. Way, way bigger than Auditorium Shores.

    I think it depends if C3 has an exclusive deal with the city about the use of Zilker. As much money as C3 brings in to the city it wouldn't surprise me.

    From http://www.austinchronicle.com/daily...torium-shores/ it appears that they will have to spread out a little bit though in order to make up for the space they are losing.

    From there, it spreads to Butler Park, the plot of grass and concrete walkways adjacent to the Long Center and Palmer Events Center across Riverside Drive. Right now, the plan is for FFF to maintain all five of its stages, but nobody at Transmission would reveal any specific plans or conceived maps as to their placement.

    This is great news. I'm so glad they're returning to Auditorium Shores. It's such a good venue.



    Also, early bird tickets on sale February 12th. If you're considering going this is an incredible deal.

    Seriously great news. Love FFF and Auditorium Shores. I'd travel for it if I didn't already live here.

    Hoping they can snag Outkast instead of ACL just to stick it to C3 even harder.

    Even if they somehow had the money for that, which they don't, C3 would outbid them in a heartbeat.

    I'm trying to figure out how this new layout is gonna work. It's going to be on both sides of Riverside? will they close the street down or what? Doesn't Butler Park have a hill in the middle of it?

    The Chronicle article said it will be on both sides and that only the east side of Auditorium Shores will be unavailable. My guess is they keep the Black and Blue stages in relatively the same spots and then move the Orange and Yellow stages across the street. I think they will have to close down part of Riverside to make it all work. Given that they got the mayor to dress up as Batman it seems like they won't have any problem getting the approvals to do this.

    So I think The Replacements will be on the lineup since if I remember correctly they were waiting after their Coachella appearance or something like that.... Boourns should come in here and clarify whatever he told me when we were drinking last September.
