@ZackTeibloom Fun Fun Fun Fest is doing an outstanding job hyping themselves up this year. Every day they’ve been posting an overwhelming amount of videos of their artists on Facebook and Twitter, hosting giveaways at venues and making it obvious the staff is as excited about the fest as I am*. Even better than the artist profiles is the contests they keep dropping on us. There are quick ones like making up a fake super-group to win a pair of tickets (I entered and if** I win, I’ll give y’all a pair.)
That contest is quick easy, but the scavenger hunt this Saturday looks like a blast whether you win or not. Check it out:
