this was my first time to attend fun (x3) fest, and while we experienced some annoying moments trying to get in (a will-call line that was a mile long), i really enjoyed the laid back vibes compared to ACL. it is much smaller and much more easy to manage, and walkable from our house.
some of my favorite shows were: tinariwen, first aid kit, and girl talk. chi'lantro was of course amazing with their fried chicken tacos and kimchi fries. this festival is also special because they have more than just music – there were spray paint artists, wrestlers, skate parks, beer gardens, games, and many more unique things to keep you busy. and with the cooler temps rolling in, it was a very pleasant experience.
