AUSTIN, DALLAS, HOUSTON, AND SAN ANTONIO TO HOST STATEWIDE HUNT ON SEPTEMBER 22
FESTIVAL PASSES, GEAR, AND MORE UP FOR GRABS REGISTRATION NOW OPEN SINGLE DAY AND STUDENT DISCOUNT FESTIVAL PASSES ON SALE NOW
FUN FUN FUN FEST announced today the details for the 2012 edition of its annual Scavenger Hunt. Set for September 22nd in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, this is a truly unique quest where fans will aim to mark off a variety of intriguing, oft-questionable tasks from their target lists to win passes and other Fun Fun Fun Fest approved gear.
In past years, fans have gone as far as placing a bartender’s toe in their mouths to getting FFF tattoos on their necks during the course of this fascinating event. All in the name of the festival that unerringly delivers the best in independent rock, electro, hip-hop, metal, punk, and comedy each year. Other items on past lists have included pictures of team members moshing inside a dumpster, petting a fake duck, dousing their faces in queso, and riding a pedicab nude.
“We think it’s pretty awesome that Fun Fun Fun fans across Texas come out to this crazy thing, which, let’s be honest, changes our, if not their lives forever.” says Matt Mandrella, Marketing Director at Fun Fun Fun Fest. “Witnessing the lengths folks go to for Fun Fun Fun Fest glory is definitely one of the most rewarding perks of this job. Will you be playing the sax shirtless on Red River this year?”
This year’s list will be provided at check-in at each city, and the finish line will be revealed on the list. Fans can register for each city’s Scavenger Hunt at http://funfunfunfest.com/
Advance online registration is highly recommended to get your team bonus points. The hunt lasts between 3-4 hours. As always, there will also be several clues on each list that will benefit a variety of local food banks and homeless outreach organizations. In Austin, the beneficiary will once again be CARITAS of Austin.

JOSEPH “RUN” SIMMONS AND DARRYL “D.M.C.” MCDANIELS REUNITE FOR FIRST PERFORMANCE AS RUN-D.M.C. SINCE 2002
Fun Fun Fun Fest is excited to announce today that Run-D.M.C. will perform at the 7th annual festival November 2-4th in Austin, TX for the first time since disbanding in 2002. Surviving members Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels will headline the main stage. D.M.C. will also be performing a set during the festival with his live band, previewing tracks off his new album and doing some of his favorite Run-D.M.C. classics.
“We couldn’t be more excited. Run DMC is one of our favorite bands, and one of the most influential groups of all-time – that we never thought that we would get to see play live, much less play in Austin at our festival,” said festival producer James Moody. He continued, “This is as big as it gets and we are so proud to be working with them”.
Along with underground favorites and discovering up-and-coming new artists, Fun Fun Fun Fest has a long and respected history of bringing in rarely-seen performances and much awaited reunions, including artists like the The Descendents, Public Enemy, Hot Snakes, Hum, Pharcyde, Dead Milkmen, the Murder City Devils, Slick Rick, DEATH, Danzig, and more. The addition of the Run-D.M.C. reunion this year will go a long way to make the 2012 Fest a highly anticipated destination for fans young and old, from all walks of life, and from around the world.
Run-D.M.C. joins a short list of artists already announced through lineup leaks, including Atlas Sound, Baroness, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Starfucker, Rakim, Lagwagon, The Head and The Heart, Danny Brown, David Cross, Bob Mould, Tomahawk and Against Me!. The full lineup will be announced on Thursday, July 12, includes over 160 artists at the festival grounds, and many more to be released for the FFF Nites after-party series.
Weekend 3-day passes go on sale Thursday July 12th, and a limited number of PIP Passes are already on sale. Stay tuned for more on this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest Water Olympics, Scavenger Hunts across Texas and FFF Nites.
