What To Eat At FFF9

Formula 1Soon. You will be hungry. Festing is hard work. You burn the calories with those 16oz curls. You will shimmy your way to slim if you don’t grab a snack or two.

FFF9 Aqua Olympics Announced

fff9 water olympicsThe chill bros and bro-ettes at Fun Fun Fun Fest have release some details on this year’s Aqua Olympics.

Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St.
DJs: Flying Turns
4pm – 8pm
Registration @ 4pm (first come, first served)

You will need to start practicing now for Paddle Board Joust, Paddle Board Relays, the Belching Contest and the Celebrity Tug-of-War. I am not sure they will use celebrities as the rope for the tug or if you will be joined by celebrities. If that wasn’t enough to witness, the lake jump ramp will be back as well as the usual camp challenges like the balloon toss and sack race. …and of course they will have the taco cannon! You could win passes of all flavors and Fest Merch.

The pre-lineup announcements to get wristbands in your hands for cheap continue to flow outbound. Fun Fun Fun Fest 9 is the latest online ticketing opportunity that will make you swear at your computer and wonder if the number of people that got in early could be counted on one hand. Get in the queue. Might I recommend listening to our January Mix as your online on hold music?


FFF9 News And Early Bird Info

FFF9I was very worried. I was a bit vexed by the plans of See Three to renovate Auditorium Shores thereby undermining our friends at Transmission to have their party. Would it be the death of Fun Fun Fun Fest? That spot is perfect for the festival that is three festivals in one.

My mind has been put at ease with the announcement that the City of Austin has in fact confirmed that Auditorium Shores will be available for FFF9. With that, dates have been confirmed and Early Bird purchase news has been delivered. Joy of joys, Christmas is saved.

Fun Fun Fun Fest 9 – November 7, 8 and 9 @ Auditorium Shores
Early Bird Tickets – February 12th @ 9AM CST
