The 2013 Fun Fun Fun Fest line up is here and if you allow it to it will pretty much change your life. Let's get the headliners out of the way. Yes, it's pretty great that we are going to see the likes of M.I.A, MGMT, Snoop Dogg (I'm never using Lion) and Slayer but the real beauty of the festival lies just beneath the big names.
If you don't know Television it's time to study up because the fact that they are performing is worth the cost of the ticket alone. Hip hop is well represented this year with performances by Ice-T, the newly reunited Jurassic 5, Action Bronson, Lupe Fiasco, Big K.R.I.T and more. The Black Stage is going to be nuts this year with Descendants, The Locust, Thee Oh Sees, Flag and Death Grips. You are going to be able to dance your ass off to some of the best electronic music happening right now with groups like Star Slinger, Chromatics, Poolside and RJD2. I could go on and on about who to see but just peep the full line up below and find your favorites.
Weekend passes go on sale at 10 a.m. today (7/10) at funfunfunfest.com
Single-day passes and timetables will be available in August.
