Recap : Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 : November 2nd – 4th : Austin, TX

Fun Fun Fun Fest is fast becoming one of MOKB’s favorite festivals to attend. Every spring, we make our pilgrimage to SXSW for warmer weather, music, and tacos. Slowly, FFFF has become our fall equivalent to bookend our summers. The festival offers so much entertainment with in a relatively small area at Auditorium Shores and you never feel like you are crowded because of excellent scheduling of the stages and artists by the fine folks at Transmission Entertainment. This boutique style festival is a nice alternative to the large festivals that tend to become a chore after the first day, especially with the sweltering summer heat. Not to mention, FFFF brings more to the table for entertainment than just music. There is always an abundance of comedy, wrestling, skate/bike park, art, fashion, and even a mechanical bull (We will neither confirm or deny riding and kicking its’ ass, at least that is how we remember it); plenty to keep you busy as you go from stage to stage.

Just like last year, adding to the fun was a movie was being filmed throughout the park for an upcoming Tarrence Malick flick (see Val Kilmer with the Black Lips and cutting his own hair here ). We would be remissed if we forget to mention the great food and the beautiful Austin skyline as a backdrop for the festival. We attend several of the larger festivals and have a great time there, but there is something that always feels right about Austin in November. So many great acts to choose from over the three days and we must say there was not we saw that could be characterized as a disappointment. From A$AP Rocky to Run DMC to The Head and the Heart to Real Estate to STRFKR, everyone brought their A game. So much, it became mildly overwhelming. You can check out the pictures and some videos of the several of artists we were able to catch.
