FUN FUN FUN FEST EXTENDS FESTIVAL BY ANNOUNCING “FFF NITES”
For the first time, festival aftershows will be free for wristband holders
AUSTIN, TX (October 4, 2011) Fans will be excited to hear that the 6th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX has just announced this year’s aftershow lineup, where shows will be free to all those with Fun Fun Fun Fest wristbands. Artists performing include Kool Keith, The Felice Brothers, The Thermals, Glass Candy, Dead Confederate, Ty Segall and more…plus appearances from select Fun Fun Fun artists.
FFF NITES were specifically curated to be an extension of the fest itself, and allow for the Fun Fun Fun experience to continue after the park closes. Shows are scheduled at classic Red River venues like the Mohawk, Beerland, Red 7, ND, Beauty Bar, Club De Ville, The Parish, and Empire Automotive. Fun Fun Fun Fest passes now stretch late into the night with the addition of FFF NITES.
When asked about this announcement, FFF Founder Graham Williams said, “FFF Nites is a new concept that we are excited about. We wanted to not only host festival acts, but add new acts, make it affordable, and change the way Austin looks at how festival aftershows can be done.”
