New Austin Festival Sound On Sound Announces Inaugural Lineup

Graham Williams, the founder of Austin’s long-running and much-loved Fun Fun Fun Fest, recently split from Transmission Events, the concert-promoting company behind Fun Fun Fun Fest, and he started a new company called Margin Walker. Fun Fun Fun Fest may or may not still happen this year; we haven’t gotten word yet. But Williams has a new festival called Sound On Sound — named after the best song from Austin hardcore legends the Big Boys — and they’ve essentially taken over the Fun Fun Fun spot. The first Sound On Sound festival is coming to Austin’s Sherwood Forest Faire 11/4-6, and it’s got a fun, all-over-the-place lineup that includes Beach House, Phantogram, Run The Jewels, Big Boi, Purity Ring, Descendents, and local Austin heroes Explosions In The Sky. Any festival that books Young Thug and death metal legends Carcass is, at the very least, worth a look. Below, check out the full lineup.
