Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest releases daily lineup and single-day tickets
UPDATE: There have been a couple of changes to the Fun Fun Fun lineup. Death Cab for Cutie is no longer on the bill; indie rock darlings Modest Mouse have been named as the replacement. Death Grips is also out; Murder City Devils is in.
Fun Fun Fun fans, start your planning. The festival released the daily music lineup for its ninth annual event, which returns to Auditorium Shores in Austin November 7-9. To give you a taste of a few anticipated performances, Judas Priest headlines Friday, Death Cab for Cutie plays Saturday and Neutral Milk Hotel closes the festival on Sunday.
The festival also announced that single-day tickets are on sale for $85. So if a three-day pass isn't your style, you can buy a ticket for Friday, Saturday or Sunday — depending on which daily lineup you deem the best. And in typical FFF fashion, there are still more announcements to be made. Next up: the comedy lineup release on July 1.
