FunFunFun Fest Preview: Icona Pop

I can't believe FunFunFun Fest starts in 2 days! I feel like there is so much to prepare for and so little time left to do so. I wanted to highlight Swedish-Pop duo Icona Pop for your listening pleasure. Their appearances in Austin will probably be your last chance to see them in a smaller setting. You may not know their name but you've certainly heard their single I Love It. It's the song that plays through the trailer for Fun Size and the song also features one of my other Fun Fest highlight artists, Charli XCX (*update* It appears as though Charli XCX has mysteriously disappeared from the festival line-up *update*). So far the duo has only released a couple of EPs but at this point the release of their full-length LP is hotly anticipated. You can find Icona Pop on the Blue stage Friday afternoon at 1:50pm.

Icona Pop - I Love It featuring Charli XCX

With the early set time on Friday, I'm sure there are many of you who won't be able to get to Auditorium Shores in time to see Icona Pop, well don't fret because the Nites are free. Those of you with FunFunFun Fest wristbands will have the chance to see Icona Pop after midnight Friday night/Saturday morning at Red 7 where they'll be playing a Fun Fest Nites show.
