2016 Sound on Sound Festival
The first annual Sound on Sound Festival will take place on November 4-6 at Sherwood Forest Faire just east of Austin in McDade, Texas. After 10 years of running Fun Fun Fun Fest and Transmission Entertainment the crew behind the scenes parted ways with Transmission a few weeks ago to start Margin Walker Presents and Sound on Sound. The festival shares the same aesthetic and DIY that FFF started with mixed with the playfulness of being held at a medieval themed park. Beach House will headline along with Explosions in the Sky and Phantogram. We can't help but notice that frequent collaborators (Big Grams - Big Boi and Phantogram and Killer Mike- Run The Jewels) will all be in attendance so we can hope for some crossover. It also boasts a ton of up and coming acts like Car Seat Headrest, Empress of, Thundercat and Hinds as well as some great local acts including Orthy, Boyfriendz, Night Drive, Magna Carda, American Sharks and more.
