Fun Fun Fun Fest's first lineup leak for 2013 reveals Ice-T and The Walkmen
Let the summer fun begin. Fun Fun Fun Fest, returning to Austin this November, has just released its first lineup leak of the season. What could top last year's Run DMC reunion? Try an early confirmation that LA-based hip-hop great Ice-T will take to the stage for the festival's eighth incarnation.
The five acts dropped Wednesday represent Fun Fun Fun's commitment to an eclectic festival that pleases the most diverse musical ears (especially those with a penchant for punk and indie sounds). Accompanying Ice-T in the initial lineup leak are legendary New York hardcore outfit Judge, British electronica DJ and producer Bonobo, indie rockers The Walkmen, and The Julie Ruin (a project helmed by Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre).
Like every FFF surprise, the leak didn't come in the form of a dry email or simple Tweet. The highly-anticipated news was crafted into a video released for Fun Fun Fun fanatics on the festival's website. (You can also watch the throwback montage above.)
Tempted by the lineup leak? The festival will be releasing Fun 2 Early Bird tickets on Thursday, June 20 at 10 a.m. But you better move quick — the discounted tickets are in short supply. The full lineup is expected to be announced on July 9.
