This year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest is celebrating 10 years with a lineup that is an eclectic mix of rock, hip-hop and indie that actually features bands that aren’t scheduled to play every other festival this year.
The three-day Texas festival, taking place from November 6 to 8 at Austin Texas’ Auditorium Shores, will feature headliners like the Wu-Tang Clan and Jane’s Addiction, who will perform their 1990 LP Ritual de lo Habitual in full. D’Angelo, who rarely tours, is also set to play the festival with his group the Vanguard.
Other acts that you’ll only see at Fun Fun Fun Fest include Gogol Bordello, who will play their 2005 Gypsy Punk, the English heavy metal band Venom, who will make their only U.S. appearance and the reunion of the Washington, D.C. hardcore band Dag Nasty.
To help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the fest they even got a very smart guy to help them announce the lineup in Bill Nye the Science Guy, who explains just why the festival is so fun, fun, fun. D’Angelo’s abs are one of the reasons, along with every member of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Nye is pretty fun himself, admitting he was the obvious choice to announce the lineup. “Look at me,” he says. “These bands are my people.” Neil deGrasse-Tyson ain’t got nothing on him.
Tickets for the festival will go on sale at 11 a.m. EST today (May 28). Check out the poster for the fest below.
