To end the weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest, the festival will be featuring artists such as Ringo Deathstarr, Lauryn Hill, and Doomtree.

While the festival is not sold out, we suggest you get your passes now so you don’t miss out on the fun.

Zac Brown Band at Austin 360

With opening bands The Avett Brothers and Imelda May, Zac Brown fans are sure to have an evening to remember, as both The Avett Brothers and Zac Brown Band put on a show that is one for the books.

Teri Joyce and the Tagalongs at Austin Beer Garden Brewing Company

After spending time in the Army as a journalist, local singer songwriter Teri Joyce decided to settle in her parents’ home state of Texas, eventually putting down roots in Austin. Keeping with the traditional sounds of country music is something Teri does well, and those looking for music fit for a honky-tonk will be pleased with Teri’s performance. Her love and enthusiasm for her adopted hometown will be a hit among the crowd as well, as her song “Austin, Texas, USA” off of her most recent album Kitchen Radio is a catchy and fun tribute to our state’s capitol.
