State-wide scavenger hunt redefines “too far” for Fun Fun Fun Festival
Past scavenger hunts have had fans place a bartender’s toe in their mouths, get tattoos on their necks, and douse their faces in queso, among other niceties.
This is a truly unique quest where fans will aim to mark off a variety of intriguing, oft-questionable tasks from their target lists in order to win passes and other Fun Fun Fun Fest approved gear.
In past years, fans have gone as far as placing a bartender’s toe in their mouths to getting FFF tattoos on their necks, all in the name of the festival that unerringly delivers the best in independent rock, electro, hip-hop, metal, punk, and comedy each year. Other items on past lists have included pictures of team members moshing inside a dumpster, petting a fake duck, dousing their faces in queso, and riding a pedicab nude.
“We think it’s pretty awesome that Fun Fun Fun fans across Texas come out to this crazy thing, which, let’s be honest, changes our, if not their lives forever,” says Matt Mandrella, marketing director at Fun Fun Fun Fest. “Witnessing the lengths folks go to for Fun Fun Fun Fest glory is definitely one of the most rewarding perks of this job. Will you be playing the sax shirtless on Red River this year?”
This year’s list will be provided at check-in at each city, and the finish line will be revealed on the list. Fans can register for each city’s Scavenger Hunt here.
Advance online registration is highly recommended to get your team bonus points. The hunt lasts between three to four hours. As always, there will also be several clues on each list that will benefit a variety of local food banks and homeless outreach organizations. In Austin, the beneficiary will once again be CARITAS of Austin.
