Fun Fun Fun Fest X Early Bird


But on a more important note, word has dropped that the tenth anniversary edition of Fun Fun Fun Fest will have a presale and it will be on March 5th at 10am. The presale will feature three day passes for the fest next November 6-8 at Auditorium Shores (hopefully back to the old layout by then). And in case you are curious, ALL early bird passes will be mailed out. That means Linegate 2014 will not have a sequel for the lucky early birders.
