I’ve been awaiting the announcement of the 2011 Fun Fun Fun Fest for quite some time now, pretty much ever since I left the park that held the fest last year. Moving to a much bigger park across Austin, Auditorium Shores, and adding a third day, the 6th edition of Fun Fun Fun Fest is set to take place the first weekend of November, the 4th-6th. Today came the announcement of who will be entertaining us on the four stages, and boy is it a doozy.
The Orange Stage will feature the likes of Passion Pit, Lykke Li, Blonde Redhead, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Okkervil River, Tune-Yards, Ra Ra Riot and a boat-load more of similar indie-rock fare.
The Black Stage will be much louder with bands like Slayer, The Damned, Danzig Legacy, Kid Dynamite, Murder City Devils, Boris and Thee Oh Sees amongst a bunch more.
The Blue Stage, where I’ll be spending most of my time, will feature a hip-hop and dance card with the likes of Public Enemy, Major Lazer, Odd Future, Diplo, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Rakim and so many more.
Finally, comedy and variety acts are the focus on The Yellow Stage, where Henry Rollins, Brian Posehn, Reggie Watts, Upright Citizens Brigade and Donald Glover are topping the bill.
Houston also has a presence on the Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 line-up, with local rappers and friends of the site Fat Tony and B L A C K I E both set to play The Blue Stage.
