SUPER POST: Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 – A Prelude

:deep breath:

Holy fucking shit.

Ahem. At long last, after many painful months filled with speculation and innocent hope, the complete lineup for this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest has been released. And in quite a creative way, too.

A room was created on the new music-nerd haven-site Turntable.fm a few days ago and with each new song on the founders’ playlists, a new name on the lineup was revealed. This idea reminds me a lot of the relationship listeners used to have with the radio before the Internet existed. That is, if you wanted to learn something regarding any kind of promotion or contest, you would have to tune in at the right minute to hear the news. Oh, the anticipation! The suspense! Unfortunately, I was not in the room to witness this grand event. However, I was able to check the festival’s website and a string of gasps and “WHAT THE FUCK!?”s followed. Much to the dismay of my fellow coffee shop patrons’ eardrums, of course.

And now, here is what I’m looking forward to at this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. Please keep in mind that quite a few of these acts’ set times will probably overlap and I won’t be able to see them all. This is more or less what I would try to see if I could clone myself into at least three people.
