Organizers for Fun Fun Fun Fest have announced 2014 dates for the annual festival. The ninth edition of Fun Fun Fun runs from November 7 through 9, and will take over Auditorium Shores and Butler Park in Austin, Texas. A limited number of Early Bird tickets are set to go on sale on February 12. An official lineup for the three-day showcase has yet to be announced.
