There was a festival that went by the name Fun Fun Fun Fest, and fun fun fun it was. But times change, names get sold, other businesses sprout up and new festivals emerge. And so these days we talk about Sound on Sound, the festival booked by Margin Walker Presents near Austin at Sherwood Forest (who one can only assume are watching closely how the Middlelands situation shakes out).

The top of the poster names this year include Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the immortal Iggy Pop, stoner legends Sleep, president of GOOD Music Pusha T, and an interesting selection of artists who've been in the game for a while (Ministry, Cannibal Corpse) and those newer on the scene (Sorority Noise, Girlpool).
