FunFunFun Fest Scavenger Hunt(s)

One of the greatest things about FunFunFun Fest, other than the line-up, is all of the interactivity. This isn't just a music festival it's an experience and you can be a part of both the experience and the music festival and all it will cost you is your time and energy. Each year the folks at FunFunFun Fest have organized a scavenger hunt in Austin for a chance to win tickets to the event, well this year they've stepped it up a notch. If you're reading this from Austin, there will OF COURSE be a scavenger hunt here but this year the hunt isn't restricted to Austin!

If you're in Houston, San Antonio or Dallas you too can win tickets with a scavenger hunt in your city. Not only that, but there are FFF scavenger hunts on college campuses this year as well. So, if you're reading this from New Mexico State University, Texas A&M, Kansas State University, or Texas State University then you could win ticket right on campus! Most or all of these scavenger hunts will happen simultaneously on October 1st. Those of you outside of Austin have better odds of winning, as it seems (via F*c*book even RSVPs) you will have fewer participants. Austin, I've got your complete details below the break, those of you outside of Austin, click your link above.

Alright Austin, get your team assembled, make sure (at least) one of you has a smartphone with Gowalla and register online for the hunt now! You should plan a costume for your team and don't do anything lame, this is Austin be creative with your costume. You and your team (up to 5 people) need to be at Red 7 by 3:45pm on Saturday October 1st. If you didn't register online make sure to be at Red 7 by 3:00pm. The lists will be passed out at 4:00pm sharp and all teams must be back by 7:00pm. It would be smart to make sure you have some way to record photo and/or video evidence of your tasks and be prepared to get a tattoo. In fact, you should probably make an appointment with a downtown tattoo artist now!

Here's what's up for grabs for the winners:

  • 1st Place: PIP Tickets to FFF6
  • 2nd Place: Weekend Passes to FFF6
  • 3rd Place: Single Day Passes to FFF6

All participants will get free food at the finish line and of course all of the FunFunFun you can handle. So, start thinking strategically. Reserve a cab, pedi-cab, tattoo artist. Make sure your phone(s) are fully-charged and start thinking about a bad-ass costume. It all goes down October 1st, so you've got less than 2 weeks to get this all done.
